/ Background

As a UI/UX Designer, I create websites and other digital products for the arts and cultural industries. My passion for art drives me to create digital products that can support the entire industry, especially artists themselves.
 

My latest project is fosterishere.com, a site for Philadelphia DJ Rebel Foster. Past UI/UX design experience includes two WordPress-built sites, In-Art (in-art.org) and What is Art, Really? (whatisartreally.com). I have also worked collaboratively with the design team at a digital marketing agency.

While studying art history and interpretation theory at Swarthmore college, I strove to learn the impact of business and industry on culture, and vice versa. I tailored my semester abroad to explore the for-profit Contemporary Art scene in Hong Kong.

For my career, I want to participate in the next chapter of this history by creating digital products that further cultural development. I aim to be a digital product manager and entrepreneur, working with artists and cultural institutions of all types.
