As an ever-developing UX Designer with a background in Natural Wine and Architecture, my industrious nature & unconventional approach to human-centric problem-solving enables me to identify alternate avenues for imaginative design solutions.

I love talking to people, pinpointing their needs, and resolving those needs through unique and creative opportunities (whether that’s the perfect bottle of wine at dinner or a beautifully intuitive digital interface).
