Awards & Certifications



I'm a UX & User Interface Designer based in New Jersey, firmly believing that user experience design is a process, not something that you cannot put on top of a ready-made app like icing. With more than 10 years of digital media experience, I made the transition to UX because of my passion for design and product development. Throughout my career, I have strived to help clients understand the importance of the user experience and help developers deliver products that users will love.



I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University at Albany and a certificate in UX Design from New York University. I have experience in interaction and user interface design, web development, search engine optimization, project management, leading product teams and can deliver anything a team or client needs to get the idea off the ground.
