Creating digital experiences to meet business and customer goals.
After completing my B.A. in Music (Classical Guitar) I performed in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma and taught guitar at my alma mater. As much as I loved music, I was never content to be just a musician. I was more interested in the craft of music and the overall experience of live performances (lighting, audio, video, and production).
One of my jobs required me to maintain a company website using a CMS. It was very frustrating and I spent a lot of time tinkering with it but could never break free of the templates and WYSIWYG editors. I knew that if I could break that digital wall, I could make it much better. That experience lead me to pursue web development and digital design. In October of 2016, I began a 13-week intensive code bootcamp and immediately after graduating from that program, I began my career as a web designer at Fulcrum.
Fulcrum is a growing company with a solid track record of innovation. As one of 3 designers currently on staff, I have been able to work on a broad range of design challenges including:
- building, implementing, and maintaining a design system
- designing complex features such as workflow automation using conditional logic
- contributing to a large and complex web application
- ongoing user research focused on trial conversions
- working with outside consultants
- improving onboarding experiences for mobile and web platforms
- UI redesign of Android and iOS mobile applications
Figma has become my primary design tool and I regularly participate in the Tampa Bay Figma group. Although most of my time and effort is spent on polishing my design skills and tools, I really enjoy hacking on software projects on the weekends. I'm nearly as passionate about my mechanical keyboard and Vim config as I am about my Wacom tablet and iPad.
I look forward to solving complex problems with design thinking and creating digital experiences to meet the needs of Fulcrum's customers.
