What makes me tick

Back in 8th grade, I watched a video in science about an archaeological dig. An anthropologist was able to look at some skeletal remains and tell the age, affluence, gender, and more about who that person used to be. After she described how she was able to determine these things, I was hooked! That same passion for anthropology translates when I design a website or interface. I have spent quite a bit of my life wondering why people do the things they do. At the beginning of each project, I spend time figuring out what site organization makes the most sense for the user, while also using my design sense to focus on the areas the client wants to highlight.
