I'm so lucky I get to do what I love. So I work every day to be better at it - for myself and for the people that benefit from my work. 

 

I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and studied Graphic Design at Savannah College of Art and Design.  5 years ago I packed every personal belonging I didn't want to sell into the trunk of my car, and my best friend and I drove 17 hours non-stop to NYC where I began working as an experience designer.

I now live in Bed Stuy with my boyfriend and my 2 cats. My hobbies besides design are reading (seriously, I read alot) and learning to be a better illustrator.  It's hard. I suck right now, but I'll get better!

I've been doing digital and experience design almost my entire career and I've now started to delve into product and service design and I find that I really love and enjoy working on solving those types of problems; big, hairy problems that require lots of research, prototyping, and testing but ultimately lead to a solution that is useful, meaningful, and relevant.

As a person of color from a low-income background, I've always had a passion for solving problems in a way that makes life easier for anyone with any background.  At this point in my career, I know that it matters less how beautiful something is, and more if it solved a problem in a feasible, useful, and most importantly, inclusive way.
