About Me


I'm a multi-disciplinary visual designer with a passion for collaboration, problem solving, typography and elegant, intuitive layouts. I've had the good fortune to work with several Austin agencies both boutique and international. My goal with every project is to understand a user's needs and create visually compelling, conceptually strong design solutions.

As a Senior UI/UX Designer on the Design Language System team at USAA, I work to research, design, test, and document an enterprise library of reusable components that streamline efficiencies for creative teams across the company. Our highly collaborative team of designers and developers work together to test designs for WCAG 2.0 accessibility, write component guidance, and incorporate external feedback to evolve the design system and improve user experience.

Apart from design, I love the meditative act of creating the perfect loaf of bread. I also enjoy running and hiking greenbelt trails with my dog. Check out my work and feel free to drop me a line!
