I take great pride in designing cohesive visual engagements for products on all screen sizes. It all begins with a concept and being able to watch a concept grow into a reality brings me pure joy. Research, wireframing, and conceptual design through to finalization of every pixel, making sure that the user can get done what they intended to get done.
A lot of what I know comes from my background in video production. I felt that if most of my work was going to be presented on the internet, why not also build the frame as well as the content. Much of the conventions I learned from my time as a video producer, director, and editor directly translated into the work I was doing on mobile and web products. From there I fostered the growth of a serious passion for user interfaces that functioned well.
Additionally, my experience with motion graphics has been quite a bonus to have when prototyping interaction animations. I continue to pursue video productions as a hobby in my spare time.
I'm a designer who likes her code. While my primary asset is visual design with a focus on usability, I feel that keeping my development skills sharp makes me a better designer. I do this through various side projects like buseyipsum.com
I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in early 2015 and it is everything I hoped it to be.
I salvage shipping pallets to make art canvases.
I usually take my longboard everywhere I go.
I wear my sunglasses at night.
