Hi, I'm Jessica!

A Product Designer in Colorado passionate about
helping startups create value for their customers

I design products that are easy to use, simple, and visually engaging. I believe in design solutions that fit user needs, business goals, and engineering constraints.

Previously a Sr Product Designer at Strava. I also started Hammock, which helps freelancers manage the unpredictability of being self-employed.

I can help you with...

UX Research

Conducting interviews to learn about your end-users. I'll uncover their needs, wants, and frustrations about your product or service.

UX Design

Creating user stories, flows, wireframes, and prototypes. Then, quickly iterating based on user feedback.

UI Design

Craft a beautiful visual design language that speaks to your users and maintains consistency.
