Hi! Thanks for coming to see me at PSUGD's FRESH SLATE! I'm a single parent, cancer survivor, knowledge junkie, and design fanatic. 
My major interests are product design/UX/UI, information design, brand systems, illustration, and lettering.

I'm passionate about design thinking processes, problem solving, accessibility, neurodiversity, social justice, and collaboration. I thrive at every stage of product design, and would love to join an in-house UX team here in Portland, or work with a local agency on digital or brand systems. I'm also open to hybrid and fully
remote positions.  
I hope you're one of the lucky few who snagged a sticker sheet from me at FRESH SLATE! Most of the stickers represent one of my portfolio projects, from product design to brand identity, information design, illustration,
hand lettering, and web design.
Here's more info about each project:
Lit. (short for literature), later renamed to Spectrum, is a monthly book subscription service which researches, curates, and delivers books by BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ authors based on the user’s genre, topic, and content preferences. I designed the entire product, including research, user testing, ideation, wireframing, and prototyping. The project overview includes links to working Figma prototypes along with hi-fidelity comps and a style guide. The brand guidelines for Lit. can be downloaded here.
Google Chat is a cross-platform chat app for direct messages, group chats, work spaces, and video calls. For this Interaction Design class project, I added features to make media sharing from the app intuitive and easy. Google has since added to Chat most of the improvements presented in my project, but Chat still lacks the ability to swipe between images in the chat history.
The Red Queen series consists of 10 illustrations in various digital and physical media covering a wide range of genres and styles, all with the theme of a red queen chess piece. 
This particular illustration was drawn in Procreate and is inspired by the video game Monument Valley.

Title: "You Can't Just Put a Fibonacci Spiral on Top of Whatever the F*ck You Want"

Semiosis is a term for the transfer of meaning between a sign and reader. 
When a symbol or sign triggers an association with another sign, which in turn triggers another, and so on, this chain of associations is called "unlimited semiosis." 
This digital collage features a 12 symbol chain: flower > butterfly > caterpillar > millipede > nautilus > hermit crab > crabs in general > the constellation Cancer > the sun > solar system >spiral galaxy > Fibonacci spiral

For my Senior Thesis I spent ten weeks conducting research and project planning, followed by ten weeks of illustration and web design, to create dysfunction.fun. The goal was to teach others about Executive Dysfunction and promote empathy and understanding for those living with what is generally an invisible disability.
Season 1 of Stranger Things takes place during the late fall of 1983, in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Eleven is a 12 year old girl with supernatural powers who escapes from Hawkins National Laboratory. 
For my Information Design class, I created a detailed infographic tracking Eleven over the season’s eight episodes, including important plot points, the number of times her nose bleeds, the number and frequency of words she says (per episode), and how her appearance changes over time.

Thanks for taking the time to read this far! If you have any questions, feedback, job leads, or just want
to chat, I'd be delighted to hear from you.
