A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I’ve always considered myself a “yes” person. I pride myself in saying yes to risks, chances and adventures of any kind. I passionately believe that embracing new opportunities is one of the best ways to learn and grow both personally and professionally. When I realized that my architecture degree didn’t truly inspire me, I created an opportunity for myself in digital design and web development.
I am completely engrossed with the idea of making complex ideas come to life with good design and usability. When I’m not working, I’m exploring the beautiful landscape of Colorado and hanging out with my beloved cat, Fish, and dog, Odie. I am a planner, designer and user of the digital world, and I look forward to any chance I get to dive in deeper.
