I'm not a robot — I'm loud, eccentric, and animated. I'm also a great designer with a love for proper UI/UX, packaging, and art direction. While studying to be an art director I took courses in interaction design, fell in love, and never looked back. With the mind of an art director and the eye of a designer it's possible to create rich experiences across multiple platforms that make up more than just the pixels on the surface.
In my own time I take design courses, attend conferences, create my own projects, and I'm always keeping up to date on the latest tech. I also make whiskey, soap, and hot sauce.
