I am a UX Designer based in Pawtucket, RI with over 15 years of experience in graphic design and a passion for helping others.
I love learning about people, their struggles, and what I can do to help them achieve their goals. With my background in graphic design and a keen interest in psychology, I found UX Design to be the perfect melding of my interests.
When not conducting empathetic research or designing a functional interface I can be found riding my bicycle down the East Bay Bike Path or reading books to my 2 young children at a local Library.
