Working with Natalie was great! She is always thinking outside of the box for fun and creative solutions to everyday problems. While she is an excellent UX designer, she is also a very talented graphic designer. She is able to create designs that are on strategy, but also uphold the brand standards. Working with Natalie was a pleasure and I hope to work with her again sometime in the future.

Natalie’s insight to trendy, successful, well designed websites is matched only by the thoughtfulness of her personable character. She’s dynamite at matching a company’s aesthetic to a applicable and profitable layout in many forms. ┬áNatalie’s sense of humor and grasp of composition are as beautiful as she is, from concept to completion. I highly recommend Natalie to any company considering this creative, reliable, problem solving team player!


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.
