Assets


T-Shaped Designer

I am experienced in all UX roles with my strength being visuals. My ability to clearly and quickly create storyboards helps the design team empathize with user scenarios. I also love wireframing and mockups.


People Person

I work well alone but thrive in a team environment. I'm happy to present to stakeholders and enjoy conducting interviews and user-testing sessions. I put people at ease and allow them to open up and give honest responses.

 

Multitasker

I am extremely organized, deadline-oriented, and a good time manager. As a father with two other jobs, I'm used to juggling multiple responsibilities at the same time. Assess, plan, focus, repeat.
