Who  am  I? 

I am an Explorer

and a Maker


I explore

Whether it's exploring innovative ways to create an easy and delightful user experience through in depth research and broad ideation as part of the UX Design process

Or whether it's exploring the arctic with a tent and several layers of sleeping bags, living in New Zealand alone for a year, or climbing high into the mountains

 I make

Whether it's making progress on simplifying a particularly complex design problem dealing with big data, technical users, and detailed procedures like the ones I encountered in design for cybersecurity

Or whether it's making figurative hot sculpted glass art, elaborate crocheted sweater dresses, or the weirdest cookie recipe I can find (zucchini spice cookies anyone?)
