I work as a UX Content Designer in Microsoft’s Cloud and AI Design Studio, because I pursue work that feels like a puzzle. I’m happiest when wrangling unruly ideas into digital experiences that feel seamless and captivating.

I’m a former fisheries ecologist (ask me about marine and aquatic ecosystems!) and use my background in the natural sciences every single day. It makes me think empirically and methodically about how the products I’m designing and writing for are nested in the ecosystem of a user’s goals and our business goals as a company.
