I love design because I enjoy solving problems.

I’m a detail-oriented designer with six years of experience crafting things for web. Currently, I'm a UX designer at Virtuoso, a travel company.

I follow the user-centered design process and believe in making the web accessible. I love defining the problem, establishing goals, researching, iterating, gathering feedback and collaborating. My favorite projects are those where I find ways to translate complex business rules into understandable UI.

Aside from design, I have experience in writing for web, prototyping in HTML and CSS, and a knack for juggling a lot of projects at once.
