Hello! I’m a digital art director with expertise in UX and strong knowledge of code. I have been working in technology for the past 13 years on a range of products and services: iOS, iPad and Android apps, responsive websites and large e-commerce platforms. I have defined brand identities for the digital space (for Fred Segal, Kenneth Cole), improved the user experience of e-commerce websites and apps (Victoria’s Secret) with rapid prototyping in conjunction with user testing and data insights. On the developer side, I have coded several iOS apps (both front and backend) as well as smaller scale HTML / JavaScript websites for corporate and personal clients.

I am passionate about improving the quality of a product through code and design and mindful of its scalability and longevity during the process.
