I'm your friendly neighborhood Designer trying to make the world a better place one design project at a time. I have supported many design roles and have worked on a variety of projects that give me a wide range of experiences. I have had the chance to work with some amazing people and hopefully I'll get the chance to work with many more. As a Designer my goal is to deliver high quality designs crafted with precision. I probably drink too much coffee. Your dog will love me. The feeling will be mutual.
Keeping the user in mind I advocate crafting strategies to identify and eliminate pain points and increase intuitive use. Iterating on projects and continuing to problem solve to bring about solutions are some of the best spells in my designer spellbook. Communicating time, technical restraints, forecasted troubles, and being prepared ensures a project is well managed and set up for success.
I love working with teams and learning from those who give knowledge and provide some of my own in return. The best work comes when minds are put together. Being a team player means more than just doing your part in the project, it also means you're putting your finger on the pulse of the project and everyone involved. Identifying points where the team needs to pivot or adapt is crucial for success. We're all stronger when we work together.
On Viz.ai's marketing team I worked directly with executives and KOL's. I was in charge of all the visual projects outside of the app including magazine ads, websites, emails, conference booths, presentations, and many other items. One of my achievements was successfully transferring and redesigning the website from an outdated WordPress to Webflow, which allowed for greater ease of content creation within the marketing team.
As a team member on the marketing team I design and create new websites, landing pages, and emails in HubSpot. I add additional support by creating white papers, guides, case studies, and additional graphics needed for the marketing department and the company.
Working as the graphic and visual designer I mainly paired with the marketing team providing art and design support. This included landing page mocks, web assets, print assets, newsletters, emails, promotional goods, and anything else that was visual in nature. Working closely with copywriters and quickly iterating ideas back and forth was one of the highlights working here.
Working in SAP’s Design & Co-Innovation Center I assisted on projects by creating story driven materials. Following the Design Thinking methodology, I helped facilitate workshops and group activities for clients. I also provide support for creating visual assets for still and motion graphics pieces. I was also the photographer and videographer for various projects.
This was a lean startup getting themselves up on their feet. As their only designer I successfully redesigned the logo for the company and produced all the other graphics used in app and in advertising. I assisted with the visual design of the product across multiple platforms including Roku, iOS, Android, and web. I also created storyboards, animatics, and videos for short motion graphic pieces.
Working with several clients I have produced many graphic pieces tailored to their needs. This included branding services, logo design, print design, web design, and photography.
