I have worked for places like Tact.ai, Kosmix (acquired by Walmart), YesVideo, Apple, and Humboldt State University, where some of my designs have won awards; and have freelanced for Techstyle, Clique Media, Milliways Ventures, Rocketship.vc, and Target (DermStore), among others.
I have built apps that were featured by The New York Times, Editorial Picks on the Apple App Store, and featured in Pocket Sommelier on the App Store in the US, UK, France, Germany & more.
Once I was interviewed by AdBusters Magazine to explain the hot, new social network … Twitter.
Outside of work you'll most likely find me at a park with my husband, my 1-year old son, and our dog Susan; over-ordering at some new (to me) restaurant; taking in the sounds of the city with a glass of wine on the rooftop; or, my favorite, exploring the greatest immersive user experience in the world: Walt Disney's Original Disneyland.

I worked together with Charles on many projects with integrated print and web design solutions. Charles and his amazing web skill set, great attitude, and high design standards added incredible value to every project. I would love a chance to work together with him again, and, am in fact plotting to do so...
