Born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, I am Front End Web Developer and UI/UX Designer currently living in Seattle, Washington. As a digital marketer, focusing on the needs of end user is my first priority. My personal goal is to make beautiful, usable products that are both delightful and functional. Whether that means diving deep into databases and programming languages, or designing user interfaces and branding standards, I work to provide measurable improvements in my user's online experiences, and hopefully, their actual lives.
To make work impacts every day life, one has to also feed their every day life. When I'm not trying to learn more cross-functional disciplines related to my field, you will probably find me working on improving my Japanese fluency, perfecting my sun salutation, or sorting through a truly embarrassing amount of nail polish.
