About

I’ve been an Atlanta-based designer and photographer for the past several years. After developing visual design skills for five years as a graphic designer, I shifted my focus to UX design with a desire to work on products that benefit people’s lives and provide intentional, accessible experiences. Currently I’m a product designer at PadSplit, working with a diverse and collaborative team of people dedicated to solving the affordable housing crisis.

My interest in visual art and storytelling has also led me to a love of traveling, music, and writing. Lately I’ve been most inspired by Scott Erickson, Sufjan Stevens, Pablo Stanley, and Benjamin Hardman.

If I’m not out taking photos, in my spare time I like to work on small projects to push my creative boundaries or learn new skills. I also like to attend local UX design meetups like UX Helpers and I enjoy participating in design communities like Memorisely.
