I'm a UX/UI designer and web developer in Denver, CO. I am passionate about UX design because not only is it about look and feel, but also usability. In order to create great UX design that your users will love and appreciate, you must first have a deeper understanding of the product and who will be using it. Then you must get rid of the parts that are unessential.

CGI

Year

2017-Present

I am currently working as a UX/UI Designer for CGI. The work you see here is an example of one of the many pages of the application I’ve been working on. I participate in requirements and development meetings. I help write user stories and help edit the Business Analysts stories so that they stay consistent with Global Stories and UI that has already been developed. I also create sitemaps and high fidelity prototypes. These prototypes are clickable through using InVision.

2013-2017

I taught myself how to be a UX/UI designer when I started working at Shane Co. as their Interactive Content Specialist in October 2013. I launched over 164 displays nationwide in under 3 years. This job inspired me to go back to school and really learn the principals of Interactive design. One of the projects I did there that I am most proud of is the interactive kiosk that was installed January 2017. I started the project in July of 2016.

Iron Horse Performance

Year

2017-Present

Iron Horse Performance was a fun client project that unfortunately never launched. I learned a great deal working with the clients. They just weren't ready to commit to building a website. The work you see here was as far as I could go without a contract and information from the client. Hopefully, they are ready to move forward in the future so that we can launch their online business.

2016-Current

All of these projects come from both school and self studies. I love following top designers in my field and find inspiration from not only their visual design but from their thought process and concepting. My favorite quote comes from The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman.

We must design our machines on the assumption that people will make errors.

It's so important to remember that no matter how beautiful or hard we've worked on a project that at the end it's for someone to use and understand. If they don't understand, then it's our responsibility to go back, reconsider, revise, and edit.

Self-Study/Practice

Year

2017-Present

I've recently started creating a sort of Daily UI. I am inspired by the Daily UI which is an email that you can sign up for. My goal is to get inspired and feel creative while creating these. I want to practice doing faster and faster sketches. I want my designs to be tighter, cleaner.

Interactive Art

Role

Artist
& Developer

Agency

Freelance

Year

2017

Everything that I do has to be fully explored and learned. As an artist I've taken up many mediums over the years and development has become the most exciting and fascinating one. Through these small explorations, I am able to create new ideas and fully explore the limits to my creations. Once these are explored further, I will do installations and experiments in public spaces so that I can also observe the human interaction with my digital art.

I apologize but these designs will only work on desktop. They are not meant to be interacted with on mobile.
