I’ve always been drawn to form determined by function. As a web and print designer, I make research-informed decisions in order to develop usable products that balance the needs of stakeholders and users. My ideal design is easy to use and goes unnoticed, with delightful details.
I cofounded Little Weaver Web Collective, a web development agency, in 2014, and built it from 3 to 7 people in the first 2 years. My time with Little Weaver has been invaluable for learning how to work with diverse stakeholders, balance multiple projects and priorities, hire and onboard new staff, and lead teams to create exceptional products.
I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember, and I find that my time spent on woodworking and pottery broadens my ways of thinking about usability and design. Investigating user needs is just as important with them, but concerns touching pieces rather than reading and pressing buttons.
I also enjoy cooking, reading, and the outdoors. The first two involve interacting with design, while the latter affords the beauty of the undesigned natural world.
