As a UX / UI consultant, I’ve conducted user research and testing, developed wireframes and prototypes, helped manage Agile and Waterfall development pipelines, and performed in-depth heuristic evaluations according to client needs. I’m especially interested in projects that address pedagogical questions using equity-oriented learning and research methodologies. I also work with nonprofit and private sector clients with community-centric missions.

Some of the things I’ve worked on include: data storage and modeling tools for university use; digital archives and editions; multi-platform communications campaigns; and bespoke B2B web applications.
