As a designer with a bachelors degree in Computer Science from Appalachian State University, I seek to close the gap between designers and developers. With years of work spent towards understanding and evaluating common pain points between design and development, I have found small adaptations that will improve the communication and efficiency of the team. As a believe in DesignOps principals, I understand that designers have a duty to stretch more into the development field so they can make more informed decisions based on the technologies development teams are capable of producing.
My area of strength includes the ability to see a product from beginning to end. Everything from product planning, research and wire-framing, prototyping, and handoff are critical to my tool belt. I have spent my career working in a number of different industries that stretch from college athletics, to design agency, to weather, to medical education. This has allowed me to broaden my horizons in the design community as a whole.
Some of my achievements include: Eagle Scout, Adobe Creative Ambassador, GCEA Poster Design Contest Winner, and Rosenfeld Media DesignOps Summit Workshop Speaker
