Many of Silicon Valley’s most established and fastest growing companies swear by Sketch when designing UIs for mobile applications because it’s fast and intuitive, and produces stunning final products.
Sketch isn’t just a tool for designing pretty apps, It’s a tool for composing UI components and design patterns that scale without effort as projects grow more complex.
When it comes to styling, we’re able to use multiple color and gradient fills, borders, and automatically scaling images on a single layer to keep out layers list clean and organized.
It gives us the ability to reuse styles and elements throughout a design — so that you never have to waste time making the same change in multiple places. And those reused elements can be nested inside one another and then tweaked or swapped out to create powerful and flexible design systems.

My education, career, and even personal life have been molded by one simple principle; well designed information resonates with people and can change lives.
I have a passion for making information resonate.
It all starts with how people think. With how humans work. As humans we have learned how to read and write and while that is incredible, we are also already hard-wired to do some things a bit more "automatically". We are animals – designed to see things things as a whole. To start with a big picture and build understanding as we break it down. To learn from the visual. The spacial. The tangible.
Information can be all of these things. The difference is design.
I am a designer who uses the art, science, and psychology of design to nurture effective communication and facilitate enjoyable experiences. Through over 10,000 hours of one-to-one teaching for one of the largest software companies in the world and over a decade of exploring the visual arts, I have learned to make information work for people.
