Resume — Student and aspiring user experience designer

About

I'm a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign planning to study cognitive psychology, computer science and design in pursuit of a career in user experience, specifically interaction design.

I have worked in branding, graphic, logo and web design as well as web development for a variety of clients including the Massachusetts Speech and Debate League, AB United Way and more. Additional work can be seen on my dribbble account.

I am primarily interested in user interface, frontend development, human computer interaction and product design.
