My Story


I'm a queer designer adept at storytelling with over 10 years of experience in design and frontend engineering. I take an innovative and agile approach to UX/UI design and development, creating data driven iterative designs to solve problems and help end users have an equitable and enjoyable user experience. I find comfort in wading through ambiguity in uncertain design problems in order to find innovative solutions. I am particularly interested in creating accessible designs and how I can contribute to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice within my sphere of influence. I enjoy the connections between design and programming, and I am adept at helping to bridge the gap between developers and designers. I am currently seeking a full time role in UX/UI design and web development. While you're here, check out my freelance design, photography, and fine art at Keefers Creative.
