With five years experience of creating digital content, I take a user-centric and data-driven approach when pushing pixels

Presently mastering Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University.

If I am not creating or learning, I am either on the soccer field, losing myself in a good book, listening to music too loudly, or squeezing in a quick nap

Born in Massachusetts, I grew up in Florida before gaining an education in West Virginia. As a curious autodidact, I spent time teaching myself design skills and principles while receiving my undergraduate degree in Sports Communications & Digital Media at Bethany College. I solve digital problems by combining user research and visual design, resulting in beautiful solutions.
