I love when I get to open up Photoshop and start working on pixel perfect mock ups for a project but I know underneath every great app is a solid design process. While I love doing visual design, I also like to get my hands dirty figuring out all the minute details that go into creating a successful app or website. I tend to work closely with developers on the majority of my projects so I know exactly what it takes to deliver assets and style guides that make the development flow smoothly.
I've been living in Portland, OR since 2008 (although I did leave for a few months to live out my dream of exploring Tokyo, Japan). I really love the community here, and I often attend local tech and design events. If you see me please come up and say "hi!".
In my off time I love to do karaoke or get dressed up and meet up with the local fashion communities!
