👋 I'm a designer with over 10 years of experience working with product development teams in the trenches. Before I became a UX/UI designer, I held roles in web content production, product management, and project management, and I've worked on digital products at major corporations, agencies, and startups alike. 

My career in digital started at Viacom, where I managed the web and mobile content for MTV, VH1, and Logo’s websites respectively, including the award-winning “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” (Shantay, you stay!) Now as a UX/UI designer, I continue my mission to craft meaningful, usable, and useful experiences for all types of users. 

My product design experience spans a wide range of web and mobile platforms. I've worked on apps for The Wall Street Journal to help readers digest their news in an easy, intuitive way; a personal finance app at LearnVest, which teaches users how to budget and adjust their spending habits; and the settings for an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device, which helps speech therapists become more efficient in teaching language to their patients. After freelancing for nearly three years working with startup and enterprise clients, I'm now full-time at Google in NYC.

Outside of work, I enjoy teaching and mentoring other career changers switching to UX. I also love running, playing flag football, grinding in RPGs, rooting for the New Jersey Devils (sigh), trying not to accidentally murder my plants, sketching and doodling, seeing live bands, traveling to new places with my partner, and constantly petting my manic-but-adorable Boston Terrier/Frenchie mix. Oh, and don't confuse me with my identical twin sister!

Born in Manhattan and raised in Tampa, Queens is now my home base.

Get in touch and say hello! 🙋🏻‍♀️
