About Me

I'm a  UX Researcher & Designer  with a Masters in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia (UBC).  I focus on creating human-centered experiences through a combination of proven design principles and mixed-methods evaluations. 

I currently work with Dr. Karon MacLean in the SPIN (Sensory Perception and Interaction) lab at UBC, and am a freelance contractor for UX projects. ​My interests lie primarily at the intersection of HCI and healthcare, supported by data visualizations. 

 

I've previously been a  UI/UX Designer Graphic Designer ,  Software Engineer , and   Web Developer  - basically anything that involves coding and design - and love carrying over skills from one discipline to another. I enjoy working with cross-functional teams and strongly believe interdisciplinary collaborations and stakeholder participation are key to good, inclusive, and accessible design. 

In my free time, I wander around with my camera, or sketch on my iPad! 

I'm currently looking for  full-time UX research and design opportunities .  If you find my work interesting and would like to know more, I'd be happy to grab a (virtual?) cup of coffee sometime!
