I am a UX/UI designer with an eclectic technical background. I programmed drones for marine research, and I wrote software for the healthcare tech industry. Now, I'm interested in designing web interfaces that address users' needs and desires.

I graduated from Olin College with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I've worked on technical projects in the past, and I recently got interested in the user-centric aspects of product design. As a private tutor and course assistant, I learned how to listen to students' needs and how to address their pain points. I look at design in a very similar light, because design is all about understanding users and finding the right solution.

As a UX/UI designer, I am excited to continue this path.

What are some of your skills?

I have experience with the design process - user interviews, brainstorming, creating mockups, and user testing. I know how to use prototyping schools like Sketch, Invision, and Balsamiq. I also have experience with HTML/CSS and JavaScript from previous projects, and I've worked in several different Agile environments.

What cool books have you been reading?

Lately, I've been reading a lot of books about how the brain works and about the various intersections between psychology and design. I've recently finished Charles Duhigg's "The Power of Habit" and Daniel Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow." I'm currently working through Don Norman's "The Design of Everyday Things."
