#Casting
Introduce yourself in few words

I’m a Senior Visual Designer working for Huge in San Francisco, CA.

#Wakeup
What are the first websites or apps you use in the morning?

The “trifecta” of my morning internet perusing includes: Pinterest, Twitter and Awwwards.com.

#Success
What projects have you worked on and are the most proud of?

The project that I am most proud of is definitely TheCollaboratory.com. It was a very large scale project with interesting challenges and I couldn’t have been happier with the final website, my team did a great job!

#Goodspot
What kind of places inspire you to work?

I’ve always enjoyed working from coffee shops. Caffeine, good people watching and free wifi! Can’t go wrong.

#Concept
Any idea, concept or trend you really like at the moment?

I’m really digging the “Baroque” style of photography/illustration that seems to be currently trending. It’s a classic look and feel that evokes a sense of sophistication in any design.

#Storytelling
Ideally, what would be the next steps in your career / life?

I would really love to start teaching design at a university level as a side gig.

#Iwishididit
Which websites, apps or products do you see and think: I wish I did it?

The Capitol Couture website by Watson Dg is hands down one of my favorite sites to be released in the last few years.

#Reset
What job would you have chosen if you weren't working in tech?

I have a degree in Art History, if I wasn’t designing for a living I would be teaching young adults about art!

#Guiltypleasure
Which games, silly apps or websites do you secretly love?

I love Pinterest. I’m obsessed with it.
