about

A little bit about me. I'm a Scorpio. I like pink. Yes, that's a hyphen in the middle of my first name so that you say it all together like {ARE-UH-LEE}. I love my kids, my dogs, horses, surfing, art, yoga and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. 
My greatest passion is advocating for humans. Specifically humans who use online technology. Which is everyone now. I am aware that there is a small edge case group of non-human cats who like to play games using their paws on iPads, but I haven't started designing for those users yet. Maybe soon.
I started my human-centered design quest with a mash-up of a bachelor's in psychology and a master's in information technology before UX was officially a big thing. I've been lucky enough to have had wonderful teachers, mentors and clients along the way so that I can approach my career by seeking projects that have a seriously high cool-factor, whether it be a long-term full-time position, a short-term fast-paced contract, or multiple consulting gigs. 
I am based out of my home-office in Atlanta GA USA. I've done digital design for platforms ranging from giant electronic roadside billboards to the teeny tiny Apple Watch and Google wearables screens. I've worked with teams in different industries and time zones all over the world. As long as they have online tech that they want humans to love, I design for them.

I love what I do. But enough about me. What can I do for you? Contact me.
