I’m a UX designer with a background in journalism and psychological research.  I am committed to solving complex problems with simple designs. I'm driven by an inquisitive nature with a penchant for storytelling and revelatory interviews, with a proven track record of growing audiences and creating engaging content. 
During my decade as a music journalist and news reporter, I composed hundreds of articles on everything from breaking news and obituaries to uncovering the latest in rising talent and cultural trends and phenomena. Through it all, I honed the art of uncovering the mysteries behind human behavior and motivation through research, deducing the right interview questions to ask and observing the unspoken while adhering to inflexible deadlines and collaborating with multiple stakeholders and departments. Bylines include Consequence of Sound, Vice (Noisey), Daily Voice, Pass the Aux, The New York Times, The MAT Magazine, Lyynks Music, Smashd, Be in a Band or Die and more. In addition to spearheading various research projects as a reporter and editorial director, I ran and debriefed hundreds of participants in a relationship study as a research assistant with the psychology department at UCLA. 
Now I am committed to fusing my empathetic human-centered approach to research and storytelling with technology to solving problems to design products that are as useful as they are uncomplicated. ​​​​​​​
