I enjoy digging into the details, rolling up my sleeves, and working alongside Atomic’s clients and the team to create great software solutions that work for the people who use them. With a focus on human-centered design, I take a thorough approach to ensuring decisions made today align with both the user and business needs in the future.

Since graduating with a Bachelors in Visual Communications from The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg in 2006, I’ve worked with startups, non-profits, design agencies, and in-house teams to create meaningful experiences.

In my free time, I love to travel near and far and experience culture wherever I am. I find joy doing archery, sailing, reading a book, and simply spending time with friends and family.
