An Interview with Sarah

Tell us something fun you like to do in your spare time.

What’s a hobby you’re passionate about?

Even though I design websites all day, I find myself learning as much as I can about UX/UI. It may not be your typical hobby or activity but improving and developing new skills is my passion. The industry changes so quickly, it’s exciting to see what’s next!

What’s a funny childhood memory?

I went to the Bahamas in fifth grade for a family vacation. I begged my mom to get my hair braided while I followed her around and she carried her bucket of casino coins. I finally convinced her, but she only had enough coins for half my head to be braided. I looked ridiculous but I rocked that half-do so hard for as long as I could when I returned. Now I’m not sure what’s funnier, the bucket of casino coins or the half braided do.

…started out as a ceramics major in college. I grew up taking sculpture lessons and all the pottery electives throughout school. When I have time, I like to get my hands dirty taking a random class through CityArts.
