I'm a junior at Chatham University studying Graphic Design and French. As a highly visual person, I appreciate good typography, layouts, color schemes, and interfaces. I want to learn the ins-and-outs of effective interface design for websites and desktops alike. I'm looking forward to shaping my knowledge and skills with UI/UX design so that I can create websites that don't just function well, but leave a lasting impression on the user.
I'm just beginning my internship, but I'm looking forward to seeing what my favorite will be.
My earliest years of life were spent exploring the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system. As I grew older, I loved designing my own websites, personalizing and tweaking computer settings, and finding hidden programs and panels. This awe has never dissipated. These experiences are the embodiment of how influential interactive interfaces are for a user. Microsoft Windows 7, though 2000 and XP are close contenders, is my backbone. It was a core experience of my growing up, which constantly fuels my passion for design today, acting as a reminder of the effect I hope to achieve on others as I grow in the field.
I adore antiquing and studying languages. I specialize in collecting turn-of-the-century holiday postcards, but I love just about any kind. I wouldn't be myself, either, if not for my love of history or research sessions into niche gadgets to improve my work flow — hello to the E-ink community!
Unfortunately, for all the die-hard sandwich believers, I have to disagree. I eat sandwiches on the daily, so I have a clear image of what a sandwich inherently is. If someone said they were eating a sandwich but pulled a hotdog out of the microwave, you'd be surprised, right? The fact we must distinguish between the two is just the proof in the language pudding.
