A bit about me

Lover of small businesses, accounting, personal finance, investing, real estate, user interfaces, automation, efficient workflows, journey maps, design critiques, dogs, cocktails, po'boys, jambalaya, pho, and more food lmao!

💳 Currently, I'm a product designer at Heartland Payments. I help along side my team to craft easy to use products for retailers and restaurants.

As one of 10 designers, I lead design for the point of sale division. Restaurant Point of Sale and Retail Point of Sale.

🦄 I worked at 3 different startups.

Usually as the first designer on a startup, I helped push out features quickly to fulfill our business goals. Learned how to maintain design systems for companies that didn't have one. Plus many things that comes with working at a startup.

🏚️  I was small business owner. Flipping and renting out condos and duplexes in Austin, TX.

I got sick of paying terrible landlords. I saw opportunity in a fast growing city to help tenants and money through real estate. I had 2 part time (1099) employees manage my properties while working my day job.

🤘 I went to school at the University of Texas at Austin for computer science & accounting.

There I learned how to look through income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements. I also took some basic coding classes and met some cool people.
