I am a multi-media designer, marketer, and brand strategist that dabbles in all things crafty and design related: web, illustration, graphic, user experience and product design, as well as photography, calligraphy, hand-lettering, and painting.
In addition to cultivating delight and surprise in my work life, I volunteer with animal rescues, play RPG video games, and cut a rug at weddings. I also like to blog on my personal site, Hello Tarra, where I talk about geek culture, design, and design related DIY projects. I read about 100 books per year and love online classes.
I love working on user experience projects, especially for app and community design projects. I especially enjoy collaborating with developers on user interfaces and web projects. I’m a bit of a branding nut and I love participating in projects where I get to take the creative direction reigns and collaborate with a team. Using the power of science and always thinking of the user, I enjoy walking through the creation of a project from ideation to the final design.
