Creative Director + Designer
 

Oh hi there. I’m Stephanie. I work in UX and digital products. I've had a lot of different titles that mean different things to different people. Past all the different job titles and roles I’m a designer who loves creating digital experiences that are practical and delightful.

Early on in my career I decided to try several flavors of design before finding out digital was the flavor that made sense to me. As a result I have a breadth of experiences, some weird and some once in a life time.

I've been on the in-house side of rolling out a brand for a large Healthcare system. I've been involved in several large, complex platform design roll-outs. I also helped repair a big bird while interning at the Jim Henson Company.

I love building teams, collaborating with others and getting into the nitty gritty details needed to get digital products launched.
