I value community involvement and giving underserved populations exposure to tech and design.
Through Girl Develop IT, I co-taught two Intro to UX workshops. Participants came from a wide range of backgrounds and experience levels, all looking for a better understanding of UX design and research processes.
I also value a diverse and inclusive work culture.
At OurHealth, I worked with our Executive Chairman to make OurHealth part of the Out & Equal Indiana chapter. At Salesforce, I was the Communications Coordinator for the Indiana chapter of Outforce, an employee resource group for LGBTQ employees and allies. I was also a member of BOLDforce, whose mission was to expand and empower the Salesforce black community.
At home, I value family (human and animal), music, and exploration.
My wife and I have 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a goldfish. When we're not hanging out at home, we're either exploring Indianapolis or going to concerts. I also like to use my Photoshop skills for important projects like Olan Mills-style portraits for my pets.
