Hi, my name is Perry.  I'm a UX Designer!

What do you get when you combine a person with a Bachelors in Psychology, a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a lifelong journey of creating experiences? 

Not your average UX Designer!

These life lessons have helped me develop an innate understanding of a users' wants, needs and goals. These experiences have given me a PURPOSE: to design better experiences, to influence, and to inspire.
