I am a UX designer, researcher, and video editor based in Nashville. I conduct UX research and share the insights through my training courses, articles, and videos. I have a background in computer science and social entrepreneurship at Berea College.
I love emerging technology and video editing and am always looking for ways to marry these interests.
My work is driven by a commitment to sharing UX knowledge and encouraging young women to pursue careers in technology.
