My Journey

I got started as a web designer, working at design studios and software development companies where I designed sites from concept to launch using HTML/CSS, JavaScript and Adobe Creative Suite.

I realize how much my success as a designer was due to the incredible resources and support of the design community. As a way to give back, I became a co-chair of the UXPA New Jersey chapter, where I organized and occasionally spoke at events for UX professionals.

Education

After obtaining my BA degree in Visual Art & Technology, I realized that since change is the only constant in the dynamic field of UX design, so I need to continuously update my knowledge.

What Brings Me Joy

Some of my favorite things.

Fitness

I enjoy being on the move – be it the meditative and deliberate as in yoga an barre, or dynamic and strenuous such as running, dancing, and kayaking.

Travel

Traveling, learning about diverse cultures, sampling unique dishes, exploring mountains, beaches, and deserts… It never gets old for me.

Photography

My father is an artist and I love all forms of art since childhood. I’ve exhibited in the San Diego’s Museum of the Living Artist and the Del Mar Fair.
