Every designer should inherantly be an experience designer – a gorgeous design is pointless if users can't use it. Designing to make the world a more functional place is priority one for me.
My first design job was at Cal State Monterey Bay where I learned the importance of applying a consistent brand (across a wide variety of mediums). I applied content to not only flyers, posters, and brochures, but newspaper ads, environmental signage, and clothing. I took each project from concept, to development, to print.
Adapting designs for use across wearable and other smart devices. The same rules that apply to smart phones and tablets have no place in the wearable world. The way we use a smart watch varies greatly from how we use our phones, and we need to adapt accordingly.

Female. Badass. I spend my nine‑to‑five designing for Edison Software, headquartered in Silicon Valley. After hours I love working with other brands, and clients of all backgrounds. Follow @lefthook.design on Instagram for my recent projects. The rest of my time is spent in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (just outside Portland, OR). Home is where my pets are (dogs and cats) and I'm an outdoor junky who loves unplugging to spend some time in nature. Always active, I grew up in the Northern California Mountains backpacking, hiking, skiing, and swimming. The only sport I follow religiously is motorcycle racing, and I learned to ride my own dirtbike when I was eleven. I believe that great things never came from comfort zones, and good things come to those who hustle. I have been blessed to work with incredible mentors, on amazing projects that have allowed me to learn the industry top‑to‑bottom.
