Always Learning and Eternally Inquisitive

Driven by curiosity and a desire to make things work better.

I listen to understand a problem, do research to identify and/or confirm it, and then create solutions for them.

I’m a UI/UX developer who is passionate about creating products that puts the users first. I want to make products that run better and are easier for the user. I've had varied involvement as a visual designer, front-end developer, or email developer. I think there should always be an aspect of user-experience understanding in design, development, or email creation.

The idea — “design is more then making it pretty” — is my driving principle. Design is the culmination of creation and execution of a solution; understanding your audience; and critical thinking skills to solve problems. This combination of thought and execution is what I find most enjoyable and rewarding.

My greatest asset is my eternal passion for learning, due in part to my constant curiosity. I can learn new things at amazing speeds. I take great enjoyment in trying to find more efficient ways to create things and upcoming technologies. I’m always looking to expand my knowledge through online learning, classes, going to conferences, or reading articles.

I share and interact on Twitter; get inspired and showcase work on Dribbble; tinker and learn new code on Codepen; work on side projects on Github; and write when I can on Medium or Dev.to. In my free time, I'm an avid reader with a ever-growing backlog of books or trying to get through my game collection for the PS4 (Red Dead Redemption 2, AC Odyssey, Tomb Raider).

I've had two speaking engagements at Codeland 2018 and WordCamp Philly 2018.
