After a recent move to Portland, I am on the hunt for new opportunities and design challenges. I am interested in a UI/UX design role, ideally in a creative agency with work in the travel industry. But most importantly, I am looking to join a team of interesting people who inspire, collaborate, and challenge each other. Let's create something kick-ass together.
As a designer, I am inspired to find simple solutions to complex problems, solve puzzles, and make new things. In addition to design, I can't live without a spicy cup of chai tea and my dog, Nigel. I love making art in my spare time and traveling the world. Currently, I am learning to make metal jewelry and better data visualizations.
