I've been designing and building software for over 14 years with a strong focus on an intuitive and seamless user experience. I'm creative, adaptive, and love to learn. I am motivated by a challenge and love the reward of overcoming obstacles.
Most recently, I worked at Edsby, creating K-12 education software for students, parents, teachers, and administrators. It was my job to unify the learning management and remote learning experience across all four stakeholders. Over my tenure at Edsby, I worked on the initial product idea building it up to its current iteration with over 215 million users worldwide and winning more than 70 awards. I was responsible for the design and front-end development of the product as well as all public-facing materials including the website, marketing materials, case studies, and promotional video content.
