I am a product designer based in Montana. With a background in photojournalism, I specialize in crafting meaningful stories through visual design and empathic research.
I had the privilege of working with Whitney as a mentor during her work as part of UX Academy at Designlab.
Whitney came to user experience design by way of a decade long career as a commercial and editorial photographer. While building her business in the midst of the Austin, Texas tech boom, she photographed portraits and events for print and digital marketing at companies including Google, Favor Delivery, and Edible Austin.
