WHERE I HAVE BEEN
Junior Designer, Design Manager
ARTFUL LIVING, MACY'S
Assistant Manager, Associate
This is what retail experience has to do with a design career: it cultivates grace under pressure; it drives home the importance of process and organization, and the impact good—and bad—leadership can have on a team. It shaped my work ethic, taught me to be straight-forward yet diplomatic, and to greet each new challenge with a smile.
WHERE I AM GOING
I design experiences that tell a compelling story and empower users; not as consumers but as people with dreams, fears and aspirations. Design goes beyond marketing campaigns; it's working to solve problems to craft meaningful experiences.
I'm seeking a multifaceted team who is willing to tear down the barrier between clients and users—to experiment and test, to push boundaries and revolutionize each and every opportunity brought to the table, together.
I'd like to go there with you.
- Advanced knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign CC
- Experience working in Sketch, InVision and WordPress
- Enough HTML/CSS know-how to be dangerous
- Ongoing immersion into interaction design and a passion for UI/UX
- Print production management

- Willing to move to another state #adventure
