Hey there, here’s a bit about me.
I am a freelance UX designer, currently working at Upright. I have consulted on various projects ranging in industries from customer service to education tech, conducting research and designing user interfaces.
My journey into UX is a bit unconventional. I went to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a in film and television production and a minor in documentary. Production in NYC heavily favors TV and branded content, so that's the direction my career went. Most recently, I worked as the lead camera assistant on Facebook Watch's Returning the Favor. Each episode began with ethnographic research in the field—from a food pantry in Mt. Olive, NC, to skate parks in San Diego, CA, to coal mines in Welch, WV—and introduced me to remarkable people giving back to their communities.
I pivoted from the entertainment industry to UX to return to what initially drew me to documentary filmmaking: a curiosity about people. I wanted to take my experience getting to know users into a context where I could make their lives easier.
Outside of work, you’ll find me dog watching, hiking to underground lakes, weight training, or trying out new recipes.
