About me

I create digital solutions to real-world problems facing employers at Indeed.

I love discovering user problems, testing designs, and crafting holistic solutions.

When I'm not in the office, I can be found running the instagram for Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue, chilling with my dogs, or taking care of my plants.
