about me

the web is just a different kind of canvas


I'm a Seattle transplant from San Diego, can you believe I moved here for the weather? I started doing design after I graduated from UCSD with a degree in Psychology and minor in Fine Art. I'm constantly learning and improving my skills in design, development, and UX.

I enjoy sewing, practicing Japanese, anatomy illustration textbooks, challenging gender conventions, and right now I'm working on my EMT-B certification.



Make it Short

I wireframe, mockup, design, and develop websites and apps.

I primarily work on front-end design using frameworks like Vue.js or Ruby on Rails as the backbone and developing a website's UI and look and feel. I specialize in user experience design and front-end development. I also provide creative direction for a variety of projects including logo design, brand identity, landing pages, print collateral, advertisements, slide decks, and email marketing campaigns.

For me, websites are canvases where I can design and build anything -- it's a space where artists can freely construct their own narratives and worlds. I believe in artist visibility and do pro bono work to help artists put their work online.
