About

I’m a senior product designer working in design research, strategy, and user experience design.

My research practice emphasizes engaging with ambiguous problem spaces, conducting interviews to make sense of user and business needs, and providing product teams with the insight they need to make quality decisions. As a designer, I collaborate with product teams to solve and iterate on problems in a way that makes sense for both users and business. I craft experiences beginning from flows and wireframes through interaction design, visual design, user testing, and analytics.

Over the past ten years, I’ve practiced design and research at enterprise companies, startups, and agencies. As an educator, I’ve taught courses in interaction design and UX research at a university design program.
