UX/UI Designer & Researcher
THOUGH SHE BE ATYPICAL, SHE IS FIERCE.
My skillset in user experience design leverages a 15-year career in the performing arts. As Director, Producer, Writer, Actor, and Designer, I have a "global perspective" on the process of creation and products specifically focused on experience-- for users, audience, and participants alike!
Previous collaborating teams include: Cirque du Soleil, Meow Wolf, Just Fix It Productions, The Interactive Deep Dive, Live Action Set, and Celebration Barn.

A MANTRA PASSED DOWN:
WORDS AREN'T IN THE WAY, THEY ARE THE WAY.
During my professional career in the performing arts and studying Shakespeare, I learned this mantra. It means that every word is a detail that is a key to communication. No word or detail must be overlooked.
I bring this insight into my UX/UI work through acute attention to detail, at all steps of the process, in order to support effective communication.
