As designer and developer of 10+ years, I am a problem-solver who executes with efficiency and empathy. I serve as a consultant to the client and advocate for the consumer. My professional passion is working with clients to discover the best solution for their needs and ushering them through the execution of their direction. Additionally, I love a challenge. I thrive in an environment that allows me to learn new things and put them into practice.

I am a co-founder for Activate Conference, a local yearly conference that teaches young adults about the career opportunities in the interactive design and development field. I am a participant on the BRCC ETEC and EBR CTEC Advisory Board. I am also active in the Baton Rouge Slack and Refresh Baton Rouge community.
