Piano lessons with my auntie c. 1995

I enjoy making complex systems easy to use by knowing how and why people interact with technology. I strongly believe that proper research and testing lead to great products. I also love to involve myself in company culture and team empowerment.

Arbitrary list of stuff I like: cooking and eating, my dog Pippa, jazz music, performing, crosswords, volunteering, trying to pull off premature greying, outdoors stuff, and the oxford comma.

I’m serving on the AIGA Northwest Arkansas board as the Vice President of Inclusion and Initiatives.
