IZEA , Winter Park, FL
Originally hired in August of 2015 as the Senior User Experience Designer, then promoted to Director of User Experience after a little over a year. As the Director of UX, I was responsible for all product designs and user research while managing the product design team and working with engineering teams to build the best experience for the users. During my time at IZEA I spearheaded several new features that are currently in production and the redesign of the entire IZEA ecosystem due to the efficiency of myself and my team.

As the Senior Visual Designer, I conceptualized new and managed the redesign of existing products, as well as conducted user studies to improve usability and customer experience. Prior to being promoted to Senior Visual Designer, I was a hybrid front-end developer/designer through two acquisitions: NFi Studios to Avectra and Avectra to Abila.
My ability to recognize business or enginnering constraints and my abilities to adapt to those requirements which are constantly changing. I am quick to pivot to those demands through my experience with an iterative design process.
Communication is the most fundamental part when crafting the users journey. Keeping an open line of communication betweet all stakeholders in an organization gives you the most well rounded answers to what your designs should reflect. Information is quintessential to a well organized and more functional design team.
One of my proudest accomplishments was my attempt to create my own wholesale craft cold brew business. I created the business, the brand and a delicious product which was named Rosco’s Cold Brew.
Unfortunately, that business did not succeed due to resource constraints and being slightly late to the market here in Florida. But, I was able to officialy create and launch my first business which I’m very proud of. It was not an easy endeavour.
