Fundamentals of Pattern Design



This 5-part course was led by Michelle Parascandolo, a talented Surface Designer with licensing experience. She walked through her inspiration and strategy for creating a complete pattern collection. Our final project brief was to create our own pattern collection with a hero pattern and three complimentary or accompanying patterns.

User Experience
Design Fundamentals Certificate

California Institute for the Arts, Coursera


For this course, I invented my own app to solve a real-world problem. My app, Cuartoh, allows amateur interior designers to collect images, notes, and links to create cohesive looks and plan for purchases with a budget for each room. I created a content map, an interaction map, and finally a wireframe site map to fully think through the app functions. The final project of the course was a clickable prototype created in Adobe XD. Click through the following functions:
1. login function
2. search function
3. view/edit room function - bedroom
4. design tip - bedroom (sponsored ad based on key words/other saved links)

I'm working on designing/developing more - coming soon!

Visual Elements of User Interface
Design Certificate

California Institute for the Arts, Coursera


I completed a series of assignments to invent an app concept and design my own interface. I participated in peer reviews and learned about designing intentionally to appeal to what users already know and how to guide their behaviors using symbols, icons, graphic elements, and animated effects to ensure they have a positive experience. I'm very interesting in continuing my studies about UI/UX design.

Motion Graphics + Animation Certificate

I attended a virtual class where I learned the basics in story-boarding and animating in Adobe After Effects. I love learning new skills, and now I use After Effects regularly to make my graphics come to life.

Bachelor of Science

Spanish Language Minor

University of Wisconsin-Stout

I studied hospitality and tourism because I love to travel and learn about different cultures. As it turns out, I have less of a passion for anticipating the needs of hotel guests and more of an eye for design. ;)

Spanish Language + Culture

I spent a semester living and studying in Sevilla, Spain. I lived with a host family and learned about traditional southern Spanish culture and customs while earning my Spanish minor.


Reading Together Volunteer

Saint Paul Public Library

Through the Reading Together program at my local library, I was partnered up with a grade school student who wanted a little help with reading. We met weekly to take turns reading books out loud and play word games like Junior Scrabble to practice reading and comprehension. We even started to create our own comic book story to help cultivate a love for stories.

Event Volunteer

Free Arts Arizona

I volunteered to help heal abused and homeless children through artistic expression in Phoenix, AZ. I took photos and helped facilitate monthly special events to create a safe and fun learning environment for at-risk children.
