About Me

I’m a UX/Product Designer with 6 years of experience working with startups and multinational corporations.

I’m currently working as a UX Designer with the iEXCEL Visualization Team at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

I’ve learned a lot of the processes, concepts and theories of UX/UI and Product Design through attending and speaking at conferences, reading blogs and applying this knowledge in my spare time and at work.

In my free time, I write articles & tutorials on the latest UX/UI trends, image optimization, graphic design, design systems, web accessibility, WordPress, CSS and more.

My Start in Design

As a junior in college I took an opportunity to get my first experience as a web design intern at a Radiology Practice in Omaha, NE.

After earning my degree, I was offered a full-time position. Seeing patients and physicians use a website that I designed cemented my passion for UX and Product Design.

I felt compelled to create Omaha Code – a tutorial site to empower & tutor aspiring designers and frontend developers.
