About

I'm a product designer and front-end developer

A San Francisco Bay Area native, I got my BA in English with a minor in Spanish from CSU East Bay. After college I worked for 4 years in the south of Spain as an American cultural ambassador.

My background studying literature, language, and working abroad taught me how to communicate effectively and express myself consisely, which is essential for the collaborative nature of design work. I have empathy for people unlike myself, as I've taken the time to study and learn about other languages and cultures.

I completed the General Assembly Full Stack Web Development Immersive at as well as the UX Academy remote design immersive. I love taking classes in my spare time and participating in hackathons and design sprints.

I most recently worked at Dell EMC as a web application designer and developer.

When I'm not sitting in front of a computer screen you can find me at the gym, enjoying the outdoors, or laying on warm sandy beaches.
