UX Designer

Multi-disciplinary creative with a focus on user experience design and bringing value to companies in the form of research, media production, and digital storytelling.


Firekit was a startup that I founded with colleagues in 2016. Working as part of the Portland Startup community, we created a product that allows users to build WordPress themes online. All aspects of creating an early-stage product were explored, including conducting user interviews and testing prototypes in the field.

Working with mentors and collecting data at events, we applied startup best-practices in pursuit of a minimum viable product. There were successes and moments of reflection, with our small team learning along the way. My role was diverse, working as the lead programmer, UX designer, and startup founder.

Firekit saw early adopters and is evolving based on the feedback we have received. We are in the process of incorporating new features with new capabilities coming in 2021.
