When was the last time you laughed?

I'm passionate about work that not only lets me find creative and efficient solutions, but allows me to have fun while doing so. A lot of that excitement can stem from simply asking a bunch of questions that nobody has considered before.

I've been immersing myself in the world of UX Design so I can answer all the "Why's" and "How's" of the world, and ensure that when we are "solving a problem" for a consumer, we are addressing something that is actually a problem that they have.

I'm a graphic designer transitioning into ux design, based in New York City.

I’m from a small upstate New York town called DeRuyter and I love Settlers of Catan, coffee table books, and emus.

If you're looking for someone who's willing to take chances, ask the right questions, and solve some problems, let’s talk.
