Hello, I'm Lexi.

I’m a designer, developer, and educator based in North Carolina.

Passionate about creating beautiful things for the Internet, I am a communicator first and foremost. My philosophy is to break down barriers between the technical and non-technical, and my expertise is multidisciplinary, spanning strategy, creative, and development.

I've been a freelancer for over a decade, collaborating with organizations like the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Duke University, and Public Media North Carolina. I previously built products at Unity Web Agency.

I hold a master’s degree in Interactive Media from the University of North Carolina School of Media and Journalism, where I was a Roy H. Park Fellow. I've been a teacher, mentor, and speaker on digital media and technology since 2015.
