I'm dedicated to storytelling and creating experience-driven products. I received my BA in Web Design at the University of Central Florida where I gained experience in tech and the themed entertainment industry through internships and projects. I'm now working toward my MS in experience design at Pratt Institute where I've been able to put my knowledge of UX and product design into practice as I investigate immersive experiences.
