About Me

Group Photo.png

Here is a little backstory on who I am. I got a very early start in business. My father and I started an embroidery company when I was 13. We ran it for more than 13 years. Our business was my first introduction to design. Part of my duties was to edit and digitize all of the artwork that came in. This is where I begin to fall in love with designing. Business and design have been apart of my life from a very early age. It's was only right that I marry those two together and become a UX Designer. In my opinion, I get the best of both worlds

If you're still reading this here's a golden nugget, I got married September 01, 2019, to that beautiful lady you see in those photos on the left. Here is a link to our wedding website.

How I Do It?

Research

To me, research is always step one on new projects. I take this time to fully understand the project requirements and goals. Doing research helps me in two areas, understanding the problem for the business and understanding the problem for the user.

Wireframe

After understanding the problem, I begin the wireframe stage. For me, this is my first pass at creating design solutions. During this process, I turn my whiteboard sketches into lo-fi wireframes.  Here is where design solutions are first introduced.

Prototype

Here is where I like to bring lo-fi, mid-fi, and even High-fidelity wireframes to life. At this point in the process, I am demoing the design flow. At this point, I’m ready to start sharing with others to review and receive feedback.

Test

Once I have a fully fleshed out prototype. I begin to test the design solution with product owners, team members, and potential users. This phase is crucial in understanding if the proposed design solution is performing as intended for the expected user and business outcomes.

Launch

We made it! At this phase, design specs have been handed over to developers. Developers have to take  my designs and developed them for public viewing.  Now we launch and analyze the performance of the project to ensure the new design solutions are performing as expected.
