I am a senior at Purdue University majoring in User Experience Design with a focus on visual and interaction design principles, pursuing minors in communication and psychology, with a certificate in entrepreneurship. I design and develop experiences that keep the user first while simultaneously aligning with project and company goals.
I bring a versatile set of communication skills alongside technical design abilities to match. My areas of expertise are in the Adobe Suite, Sketch, and Figma. I have experience working in and developing web applications. I work with HTML and CSS and have experience in utilizing Bootstrap 4. I love to work in teams and make friends out of everyone I meet! I have spent two semesters as a project lead for two UX courses in projects sponsored by UEGroup (fall 2019) and Dionysus (spring 2020).
My most recent experience in the field comes in the form of a UX design internship at AgencyRoot, a startup that has built CRM software for crop insurance agencies across the USA. My work there involves mockup design in Figma, regular conversations with our users, and development in Bootstrap and HTML.
Outside of my daily routine, you can find me on campus spending time with my friends, working on personal passion projects, or enjoying a late-night gaming sesh.

When I first started my journey into the rabbit-hole of UX, I thought everything was going to be smooth and easy. I coasted along and finally realized that I had no idea what I was doing. After a few mental turnarounds and help from a few mentors, I broke my shell and came out on top.
Now, a few years later, I feel confident in a few things!
With enough effort, I can do anything
UX is crazy, and I love it
I am focused and ready to succeed
Although I have learned so much, I know I am only in the shallow end. I am eager to learn more and want to do so by making a real-world impact with my work. My journey started a long time ago, however, and I owe who I am today to my journey as a kid.
I simply love to design. I love to create. I always have, since I was small. It all started when I was about 10. I would sketch out fantastical characters and mighty heroes during classes where I should’ve been paying more attention. I would flesh them out and create unique and colorful worlds and adventures like those I had seen in movies and stories. These would go on to inspire me to create more and more until I had an entire world full of animals, people, and who knows what to dream about! As I grew I would take my creations with me in my head, but now welcomed in the creations of others into my thoughts.
I found that other people too had brilliantly articulated worlds with depths far greater than mine. I began to read all about the different worlds from the likes of Tolkien, Asimov, and Karpyshyn. I let their feelings guide me in my passions in life. I began to think, “how could I create this, and how would Tolkien have done it?” I began to imagine all the different ways that things could come about but from various points of view rather than just my own. And thus began my journey into user experience design without me even knowing.
