When / Where

I grew up in the Boston area and now live in Central Square with two roommates and my cat, Atticus.

I graduated magna cum laude from Northeastern University in Boston, MA with a degree in UX Design and Computer Science. I graduated with University Honors Program Distinction, Honors in the College of Arts, Media, and Design, and as a member of Northeastern's Huntington 100.

Why

I have experience in strategy and design research, as well as pixel pushing and front end development (I built this website!).

My expertise in accessibility intersects with my love for design, as I am passionate about ensuring that all people have equal access to services and products. This website complies with all ADA 508 standards for contrast and is keyboard & screenreader navigable.

How

Design Research • Information Architecture • Wireframing • Prototyping • User Testing • Accessibility • Social Media • HTML • CSS • Agile

Other Irrelevant Stuff

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time cooking and baking and purchasing too many condiments that all have to be refrigerated. I chronicle my food adventures on Instagram and I love making homemade tortellini and sourdough bread. I deeply enjoy reading and am currently absorbing everything I can regarding agriculture policy in the United States. I have a Harry Potter tattoo and a missing finger.
