Hi, nice to meet you!

My perspective is a blend of user experience, advocacy, and development, from the mountaintop view.

When I create or quality check screen designs, I have users in mind, regardless of disability. I also have my development team in mind, knowing that as the experience designer, I have a duty to the real people who will consume the content. By providing developers detailed annotations, I’m already setting the expectations for quality control.

However, a handoff without annotations can often be a gap where organizations need to think about bridging the disconnect, in order to prevent a snowball. Organizations who address accessibility from start to finish, win.

I’m interested in fixing the broken experience that is the entire web. Turn on a screenreader. Now try to navigate the web and not have anxiety.

But seriously, I’ve reviewed some web experiences that really need some help. With my blend of knowledge, I want to design quality experiences from the start, and also work with developers to remediate sites.

My personality type is an advocate. So I do best in positions where I’m allowed to do that. I’m looking for an opportunity where I can channel technology through my skills to help people, the environment, or a good cause.

Outside of design, I’m an obsessed baskteball fan, video game player, and I enjoy exploring the mountains near my home in Colorado.
