Hi! I’m Theresa, senior product designer living and working in Atlanta,GA. I believe in designing products that are simple, fun and easy to use.

With a background in visual design and branding, my interests in the field of UX developed as I searched for deeper ways to marry my creative talents with my natural inclination to problem solve. During this time, I discovered a true passion and connection to the principles of UX design. I’ve spent over a decade in the field of design, working across print, web and motion design with the latter half focused primarily on product. I am passionate about my craft and feel fortunate and inspired to do what I do everyday.
