UI & UX Designer

experience

I am a designer with a focus on web and mobile application design.

I also have experience in print and publication design, package design, exhibit graphics, UX and UI design principles, and printmaking processes. I recently got married (!!!), and live in Rockville, Maryland with my husband who co-owns his own residential landscaping and garden design business. In my free time, I like to work on crafts, re-watch The Office for the billionth time, and cook.
