Gained knowledge in the Institute of Art, a base knowledge that is irreplaceable. I was emerged into life drawing on a daily basis. Gained the fundamental knowledge of color theory and enjoyed seeing a work of art come to life from a brush stroke or seeing it emerge from clay. Also had the pleasure of experiencing environmental art.

Freelance UX Designer
Creating Interactive Flash Banners, re-sizing and correcting assets for BofA, Chrysler and Dodge.
Technology is ever-changing and we and our roles need to adapt and evolve as well. As a UX Designer for years, my focus has not only been in design, but having experience in information architecture and being in charge of gathering business requirements. This full 360 degree view of the project creation from beginning to end enables myself to think past the final design and really push the creation of the final product far beyond its common solution, in order to develop its own unique voice and persona. Whether it’s a travel site for a business or a defense system to a banking application when you tackle any project from multiple perspectives, you allow yourself to see problems and solutions that would otherwise go unnoticed without this insight.
