About Me

Hey there, I am Elizabeth (Lizzie)! I am a User Experience Designer from the hilltop known as Peoria, Illinois.

As a freshman I am still learning the ropes in the program, but I am eager to get started.

I have a love for the musical arts as it has made a great impact on my perspective of the world around us.

If an song does not flow or have a rhythm, can it truly be understood? That is a question music asks me frequently. I take this set of mind to my work in the digital world.

Some ask me how I got on the digital path, as I usually create industrial things. My mind simply goes to my sixth grade science class. I will always remember it to be my first designed project. My team called it the Bunny-Dragon Coaster (as creative as a sixth grader can be). Our teacher gave us the task to create a roller coaster for a marble with split pipe insulation, tape, and must have three loops. I remember being so thrilled with the finished product. I still carry that curiosity and enthusiasm with every project I take on. I can not wait to carry on!

Featured Projects


Puzzle Cube

Puzzle Cube

The goal was to create a six piece puzzle cube and draw up blueprints to then physically create the toy. Each piece could not have more than six 1'' cube pieces and no less than four. I do plan on making a 3-D printed version of the toy later on.

Lone Balloon

Lone Balloon

In the need for an item in an application, I sketched up a lone purple balloon. The balloon will be a roaming object that is just out of reach to the player worth extra points if caught. There will be a mini challenge opened when all the balloons are caught and destroyed.

Balsa Bridge

Balsa Bridge

I designed a bridge that weighs 2.02 oz and holds 54 lbs. The goal of the project was to study how to evenly spread weight throughout an object to make it stronger overall. I believe this can be brought to the digital world as well. Spreading out the objectives can make the project stronger as a whole.
