As a creative
I have been working in the design industry for almost 20 years now and am amazed at how technology has transformed the way we consume and create. While design fundamentals remain the same, the ever-changing influences of technology and innovation have shifted and morphed so many experiences that even the teaching of design fundamentals has been disrupted. As I reflect on my past experience designing for web, mobile, print, social and architecture. I see my design style as an evolution of my life's creative journey. To stay inspired, I enjoy working on a range of hands-on art. My latest work is exploring encaustics and screen printing, with a focus on mixed media collage.
As a professional
My career path has taken me from architect to educator to user experience designer. Although they are all very different job roles, they are all similar in many ways. Each one has contributed to a deeper level of understanding of how we experience and design the world around us. I currently work as a UX/UI Creative Director at Capital One on the Digital Design & Innovation team in Richmond, Virginia.
