About

I am currently a user experience designer for Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon. I love editorial, print, and interactive design. Besides all that, I'm a great cook and baker (I make the best snickerdoodles and fudgey brownies), I am pretty sure I can untie any knot known to man, and I'm a huge animal lover (I have two cats: Brobee and Minnie Meows).
