accessibility & inclusive design
Research allows for investigation and inquiry into the area of human behavior and the ability to design for a wide range of users. My interests lie with those who are on the fringes. Considerations of cognition, mobility, and the ability to see and hear drive my work in this area. I regularly partner with organizations to create accessible design for the web, mobile, and printed communications. Outcomes have resulted in workshops, training sessions, and consulting partnerships with leading organizations such as the Vera Institute of Justice.
