I am a UX designer. This is my blog.
But what’s my story? Here is the long version… I’ve always had an immense appetite for art. So when it came time to choose universities, I enrolled to Herron school of Art & Design (Indiana University) to pursue my dream. During this time, I inevitably stumbled upon a different branch of art: design. More specifically human-centered service design. It was love at first sight. I laid aside the oil paintings and pencil sketches and transitioned into a world of psychology, marketing, typography and visual communication. A couple years later I found myself holding a BFA in Human-Centered Design, ready to revamp the world by improving peoples experiences with any given product, brand, or service.
This fortunate turn of events has made me the User Experience Designer I am today, designing for companies such as BNP Paribas, CMCMarkets, and Deutsche Bank. I now design complex applications and simplify experiences for financial trading software. And I love it. #Geek
My design strategy involves working through all phases of the design process including research, analysis, interaction and visual design. My weapons of choice are Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and sometimes venturing into After Effects for some extra sparkle. As you can see, I am an Adobe fanatic.
