Nice to meet you!

I am originally from California and received a degree in cognitive science from UC Santa Cruz, with a focus in human computer interaction. Last May, I graduated from CU Boulder with my masters in Creative Technology and Design. While at CU, I've worked as a research assistant in the VisuaLab, where I get to explore my passion for learning about the human experience in the context of technology use and design.

I currently work as a UX designer and researcher at Spectrum Reach. In this role, I have worked on both internal and customer facing products, doing both research, design, and testing. Outside of school and work, I love running, the outdoors, and being creative in mediums other than pixels (painting, sewing, and beyond).
