During my undergraduate education, I became enveloped in the study of human-computer interaction. Through my studies in mathematics, software development, and user-centered design, I have found that ubiquitous computing will lead to success in art, science, and education. People use digital artifacts every day. Those that are significant provide practical and navigable solutions to their users' problems.

As a Human Experience Designer, I generate such solutions.

In the fall of 2014, I studied computer science, software development, and design at AIT-Budapest. I was mentored by the great Ernö Rubik (Rubik’s Cube, creator), Ernö Duda (SOLVO BioTech, founder), and Gábor Bojár (Graphisoft, founder) to expand my international view of the user experience.

Since returning from Hungary and graduating from the University of Washington, I have become deeply involved in the Seattle startup community as a designer, developer and small-business consultant.
