About Me

I'm a (newly!) Los Angeles-based UX / web designer and photographer that was previously based in San Francisco. With 7+ years of experience, I've worked on digital products, branding, and print in tech and entertainment. I've worked in-house and at agencies, and on a fully remote/distributed team since 2019. I've been photographing clients since 2008, running photography programs at companies, doing corporate headshots, portraits of musicians and artists, and emerging technologies.

On the side, I run an enamel pin business called Wawa Wawa (it's an excuse to draw food I like), take care of my indoor jungle (I used to water the plants in the dome at the Academy of Sciences because I couldn't get enough of plants), and cosplay and play video games with my friends. I love playing ping pong.
