about me

Visual design is my passion!

I can help simplify your users’ experience with my creative storytelling and problem solving skills from years of experience as a video editor.

About me

Long before I decided to switch gears into UX Design, I’ve been a problem solver. 

I like to look at everything as a puzzle, even life. There are many building blocks and pieces that need to be analyzed before they can be put together. 

Using both my analytical and creative mindset I chose to pursue a career in video production. Graduating with a B.A in Communications from William Paterson University & earning a Entertainment Media Business certificate from NYU, I spent the last decade producing dynamic, bold, stand out video for businesses and brands.

Video will always be on trend that’s one reason why I wanted to expand my horizons and see what else is out there, what more could I do as a visual storyteller/designer. After research into other avenues, I came across a term, most of us hear and wondered too – “What is a UX Designer”. 

In 2019, I started Careerfoundry’s UX Designer Plus program, with additional specializations in Front-End Development, User Interface (UI) Design and Alexa Voice Interface Design (Voice Interface Design). 

As a recent graduate and career changer into user experience (UX) design, I’m rebuilding my portfolio and once again, looking for the next problem to solve.
