UI Designer + Front End Developer
What I Do
from Orlando, Florida.
I design and build websites and applications that are easy to use by focusing on content, respecting margins, and adding subtle interactions that engage the user.
My passion for design sparked when I was approaching graduation at Florida Atlantic University. After receiving my degree, I decided to pursue my passion by joining a design bootcamp with Thinkful (formerly Bloc). During the bootcamp, we also learned front end development, and I quickly started loving the problem-solving aspects of it and seeing my designs turn into a real-world product. After completing the bootcamp in 2019, I landed my first internship at Apple as a UX/UI Designer working on internal websites and platforms. In September of 2020, I got another internship with Apple as a Web Developer working on email templates, websites, and some UI design.
Some fun facts: I'm a sucker for great branding — almost bought a brand of almond milk just because of it — cookies & cream flavored anything, and craft beer.
Where I've Worked
RealTime Services | Apr 2022 – Current
As the first designer at RealTime Services, I've had the opportunity to create a design system and style guide from scratch as a guide for our design language and a source of truth for handoff to developers. After creating our styles and assets, one of our largest tasks was developing a new version of our PEO software platform where I created design mockups to give it a refresh, modern look and feel while also prioritizing functionality. In addition to the designs, I also assist our development team in implementation using Angular, Material Design, HTML, and SCSS.
Web Developer Internship
Apple | Sept 2020 – Apr 2021
With the Retail People Communications team, I worked on both design and development to create email templates, websites, and implemented a GitHub solution to host a podcast. The main technologies and tools I used during the internship include HTML, CSS, Stylus, Kit, Gulp, Sketch, and Figma.
