I am a user experience designer living in beautiful Denver, Colorado with my husband, son, two cats and dog.
I’m passionate about user experience design and designing good interfaces for web and mobile applications. I read voraciously and am always excited to learn new things and share what I’ve learned. I’ve attended numerous conferences and have enthusiastically applied the knowledge I’ve gained in my everyday work.
When I’m not in front of a computer screen working, I can often be found in front of a computer screen playing computer games. I also enjoy reading books on my Kindle, building Lego with my son, and enjoying fine wines and the culinary wizardry of my husband.
In 2008, I earned a Master’s degree in marketing from DU’s Daniels College of Business. Now with an advanced degree and over fourteen years of design experience, I’m looking for the next great opportunity, take a look at my resume and contact me if you have it.
I enjoy learning new techniques and theories by attending conferences and trainings around the country. I tweet, take notes, and present what I learned to my colleagues.
