My Story

After moving to Los Angeles on my own at age 18, I became a primarily self taught graphic & web designer. I soon began accepting my first freelance clients while also working in agency and corporate environments. I loved this work, but after 5 years, eventually grew hungry for more of a challenge. I discovered UX. While working at the Big Lots corporate office in 2015, I got my first big break and transitioned from a visual designer to a UX designer for their $35 million e-commerce launch. In February, 2016, I made the leap to quit the corporate culture and began life as an independent UX/UI designer and contractor.
