A story about myself
Through a series of unfortunate events, I found myself trapped in my bathroom with no door handle.
For two hours I tried yelling for help and experimenting with different possible handle creations. Using found objects I created a handle out of a cap and an open shower curtain ring.
Future bathroom requirements

My day to day
Here are a few people who have made me the designer I am today.
👉 A thinker. She applies the design process to all aspect of life and can help you solve any problem.
👉 A trend creator and risk taker. He is ahead of the curb and knows how to lead in design.
👉 An inventor. He gets his hands dirty and makes things a reality.
👉 My previous boss at Axon. He taught me how to work my strengths and not apologize for them.
👉 A storyteller. She can explain anything to anyone, clearly and beautifully.
👉 My first mentor. We collaborated and became partners in crime at Microsoft.
👉 An artist and designer. She believes in craft and makes things beautiful and practical.

Grace Hopper at Axon
I lead Grace Hopper for the company and each year try to grow our support and impact for the event. I've created a process to empower women and men.
Pride at Axon
Last year, our office manager Candice Smith started and coordinated Axon's participation in the Seattle pride parade. I helped coordinate the design and swag. This year will be our second time and now more offices nationally are participating!
