Visuals vary greatly between magazine types— for a teen magazine a teenage girl wants to see someone like herself and maybe some cute boys. An engineer will read something more complex and doesn't mind spending some time to understand a story. How do you explain the complex transfer of energy between countries visually? A family looking for advice on buying a new car might want to see something about cars that isn't what they would see in a car dealership.

About

With a BFA from School of Visual Arts in New York City and a full-stack bootcamp completion in Copenhagen, I have the unique characteristic of being both a designer and coder.

I design and code fully responsive websites and apps– always optimized for mobile viewing.

I shape the design of all stages of product development including reusable component libraries.

I love working with teams to make ideas come to life. I am accomplished in making sure feature requests are capable of completion in a time frame agreed upon, and am aware of when compromise is needed.

I know how to ask questions in order to bring clarity to problems– resulting in getting various roles such as: designers, developers, founders, managers and UXers to work off the same page.

The only constant in technology is that there is no constant. I stay up-to-date by learning and following trends and methods of modern design and coding principles. My most recent online classes are: “Using motion design to animate with purpose and create delightful experiences” put on by Awwwards, and Process Master Class for in-depth UI/UX design by Nguyen Le.
