I¬†originally went to school for biology ūüĆĪ but after a few years in the workforce realized product and UX/UI design was more my speed.¬†¬†
I see design as a way to combine creativity and data to make things that people will enjoy using! I love to take on new challenges, but am especially interested in:
¬† ¬†‚ÄĘ mobile design¬† ¬† ¬†¬†
¬† ¬†‚ÄĘ consumer focused products
¬† ¬†‚ÄĘ data visualization
In my free time I like to draw, knit/crochet, play D&D, and bake.
