the designer...

I’m a leader, product designer, design thinker and human-loving optimist. I have a mission to maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact with all my work. I am an open-minded and focused designer ready for any challenge that may come about. 

Let’s make sure design always has a seat at the table! ;)

Continuously innovating and pushing the boundaries to make transformational experiences. Embracing new ideas and skills, while always viewing challenges as opportunities to learn and improve.

Hello, it's me! The one behind the pixels. As much as I love design and pretty much eat, sleep, breath it. I have discovered the beauty of balance. Which has lead me to live a more fulfilled well rounded life, which has helped translate into the way I craft my designs. Beyond the digital realm, you'll find me embracing the beauty of nature, finding therapeutic company with my furry friend, immersing myself literature for personal growth, and exploring diverse cultures through the art of cooking and savoring new flavors. This holistic approach to life not only fuels my creativity, but also shapes the unique perspective I bring to every design endeavor.
