About

I'm a UX designer and developer. I do prototyping, interaction design, information architecture, graphic design, usability testing, and UX education.

I currently work at Epic, where I am an all-purpose UX multitool building software used by some of the most respected medical systems in the world. Previously I've worked at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Compuware, and Condé Nast Digital.

I have a master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction and bachelor's degree in Screen Arts and Cultures, both from the University of Michigan.

I like dogs and picture of dogs.

Work
