Hi, I'm glad you're here!


I'm an exceptional product designer, leader and researcher with over 10 years of experience. I've worked in-house and as a consultant, tackling complex problems in a variety of industries.

What really gets me excited is mentoring junior designers to develop their skills and help shape their career path. I love building design teams and dynamic practices that balance tried and true methods with new thought leadership.

I thrive on the challenge of solving difficult and interesting problems. I believe teamwork makes the dream work so it's vital to collaborate with a balanced tech team, including developers and other stakeholders, to achieve the best user outcomes and exceed company goals.

I'm obsessed with learning and I'm always looking for ways to experiment and grow.

I'm proud of what I've accomplished, but I'm even more excited about what's to come. Let's make some amazing things happen!

For Funsies

Besides designing exceptional products for people, my raison d'etre is exploring the world and spending quality down time with my angel bear Newfoundland, Paya. My country count isn't very high yet, but nothing thrills me like landing in a new city and I've been to some really unique places like Lebanon and Colombia. Of course growing up in Colorado gave me a love of hiking and being outdoors. My favorite indoor activity is reading (book count unknown but quite high). 

And no, I don't speak French I just love that saying :-)
