What I do

UX & UI Design

I design user friendly experiences for apps using an iterative process of user research, ideation, sketchboarding, wireframing, and prototyping. Using the brand’s persona and experience guidelines, I create the visual design to suit the motivation, emotion, and story of the experience.

Front-end Development

I code the the interface by building out designs and interactions, coding semantic and accessible markup, building responsive layouts, and creating reusable components. I am excited by working on a team with other enthusiastic developers to collaboratively solve problems and build a high quality product together.

About Me

Iteration is key to designing an intuitive and delightful experience. Only user research will reveal what kind of experience you need. Write code clean, well documented, and simple from the start. Focus on projects that contribute to bettering our world.

I studied Psychology and carried out research at the University of Victoria. I apply my knowledge of human motivation and emotion to my user experience design and my knowledge of scientific research to learn more about user behavior.

I was born and raised in Germany. I have a dog named Dexter. I’m part of a weightlifting club. I can ride a horse in both western and english style. I'm a huge fan of West Coast craft beer. My dream is to build a cabin in the woods.
