O.G.

Designer. Developer. Teacher.

Background

Since high school I have been designing and developing logos, branding, websites, apparel, flyers, brochures, and more.

February 2010, I started freelancing to gain experience as an Information Architect. I enjoyed working with schools, churches, entrepreneurs, events, non-profits and companies of all sizes. Now I am a Senior User Experience Designer for a nationally known company.

Education

While attending The Savannah College of Art and Design I majored in Industrial Design minored in Interaction Design taking classes in human computer interaction, information architecture, perceptual and cognitive human factors and contextual research methods.

While I was middle school began to teach myself front-end languages like HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, jQuery, and JavaScript.

Community

I am a Core Team member of the Women's Ministry at First Church of God. Where I head up a ministry that focuses on teens in the foster care system. I also create promotional materials for events offered by First Church.

From 2014-2016 I have gave back to the New York City community volunteering my time to teach high school students how to code in front-end languages with the non-profit ScriptEd.
