I find creative and effective user-centered design solutions.
I draw upon a diverse background, one with roots in marketing— in corporate, agency and startup environments— and which gave me experience in consumer brand communication, managing business objectives, conducting and interpreting market research, cross-team collaboration, and more.
I’m in my element when I’m creating, but I understand that creativity without context lacks purpose.
My identity as a user experience (UX) designer is grounded in a capacity for cognitive empathy, a deep interest in how people connect through verbal and visual communication— and a passion for languages and cultures, enriched by years of living abroad.
Now certified in Experiential and Human-Centered Design, and having trained in the various stages of user experience and user interaction design, I feel my multifacted background and skillset has given me a deeper understanding of — and unique perspective into — the UX/UI design process. You can read more about my own process here.

Who designed your website?
This is a single, one-page site, which acts like a multi-page site —but without the need for multiple page loads.
I'm happy with how it turned out, but am always open to feedback.
What’s your favorite aspect of UXD?
While I am confident in the skills I've gained and have applied on solo projects, as UX designer, I cannot operate in a vacuum. Collaboration is essential in ensuring effective ideation and throughout the iterative process. And for me, nothing beats the opportunity to learn and gain insight from the unique perspectives of others involved in the project or in the process of participatory design.
I embrace the fact that I'll never stop learning —and I think that both drawing on, and contributing to, the collective knowledge of others, makes me a better problem-solver.
What's with the "smallgreendog"?
Because you noticed it.
Actually, smallgreendog is brand identity I developed for myself several years ago, with the intention of suggesting something which, while not overwhelming or in your face, you couldn't not notice it.
Also it's quirky. I like quirky.
Are you available for a consultation?
Absolutely. I'm always open to discussing a new project and providing whatever help or direction I can. Just get in touch via any of my contact methods above, and let's talk about what you have in mind.
Do you have a CV?
