I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. I have since worked for start-ups ranging from tech to advertising, these positions have provided me with an immense amount of experience in a short amount of time. I have designed countless websites, developed many brands, designed mobile applications, shot photography out of helicopters, traveled internationally, developed social media campaigns, and pitched ideas to enterprise businesses. Today, I am based in San Diego working as the Design Manager at Tiled.co where we empower designers to build interactive digital experiences without using any code.

Tiled / Design Manager
Aug. 2019 - Current
Tiled is an interactive content platform built for the new age of communication. Our no-code story builder lets teams create, share, and edit their content anywhere, anytime, with actionable analytics to scale their impact. This is what we call a microapp.
I work to create, build, and design microapps of all kinds.
I work with our Sales org to create proof of concept microapps with potential customers currently static content and bring their documents to life. These microapps have helped close deals with some of the worlds biggest brands.
I lead our efforts to generate educational and inspirational materials to help our growing community of microapp designers. This involves creating templates that gives our users a head start on the microapp design process and ramp up onboarding. This also involves generating educational microapps that explain and showcase all features available within Tiled. As well as, generating instructional microapps to help navigate new users through the product.
I also work with our marketing team to create customer facing microapps showcasing use cases, new features, case studies, and more.
Finally, since I am a power user of the tool itself, I work with our product team to develop and ideate new features to be integrated into our product. I also help to QA product releases and identify bugs.
