“Work Smarter, Not Harder”

– My approach to being efficient

About Me

I’m a designer who loves turning big, conceptual ideas into simple experiences for users. My design process consists of research, analysis, experimentation, and revision.

A little bit about my journey as a designer: While attending college as a graphic design student, I discovered that my love for visual storytelling steered me toward strategic design. This inspired me to pick up web design that led to online marketing, which continued to web development and now to UX-UI design (user experience – user interface design) for both websites and mobile apps. All of these interests connect with each other, which help me quickly pick up related skills. My passion is to create simple, elegant products that improve productivity so that users can have a satisfying experience as they use the products to accomplish their tasks.

Other than designing and programing, I enjoy painting and doing outdoor activities, such as hiking and rafting. I make it a priority to appreciate nature and capture the beautiful moments!

Education: I attended University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and was in the Graphic Design program for three years before I decided to double major in Information Technology Management (ITM) and Supply Chain and Operations Management (SCOM).
