professional experience:

Web Designer now

Currently designing for my former professor at the University of Michigan – School of Information, Sarita Schoenebeck. The project requires me to design a website that will serve as a home to research conducted on the history of (almost all) social media platforms. 

The Smithsonian Institution 2023

I worked with the Smithsonian's Digitization Department for eight months as a UX design consultant to improve the usability and accesibility of their 3D Voyager Platform. My team and I redesigned the entire 3D Voyager experience to better align with their intended audience and give users a smooth, and overall less intimidating experience to the Smithsonian's complicated 3D tool. 

Showtime Networks 2022

For six months I was a full-time and then part-time intern for Showtime Networks. I gained so much professional UX design and research experience from this role. I saw how design projects are approached in an in-house environment, conducted and organized research, learned how to communicate with developers, and learned how to maintain and utilize large, company wide design systems. 

Ann Arbor Art Center 2022

For four months in 2022, I had a position as a graphic designer and a gallery assistant at the Ann Arbor Art Center. I created graphics for the Art Center's scholarship program, where the stories of these children were showcased on social media. I also helped the head exhibit designer open their first show in a brand new gallery space. 

Electric Last Mile Solutions 2021

My first ever office job was at an electric vehicle start up called Electric Last Mile Solutions in Troy, Michigan as a Digital Marketing Intern. I experienced first hand the fast-pace environment of a start up, and learned so much about marketing. I handled the company's first ever email newsletter campaign, created a social media plan, and even helped plan events. I learned what SEOs were and how to use them to benefit a business.
