I bring meaningful solutions to life for people
User-centered Design • User Research • Rapid Iteration • Product Strategy
I have nearly 8 years of experience in UX, immersed in design teams with startups, enterprises, small teams, and large companies. I'm adept at making sense of and designing for complex systems. Close collaboration with teams is my specialty in an end-to-end process - from discovery through design to development. My mobile, application, and responsive web designs span diverse sectors including civic tech, data, e-commerce, financial software, education, publishing, food, automobile, retail, and non-profit.
I serve as co-chair and mentor with the Seattle chapter of Hexagon UX, give design talks, and care about mentoring the next generation of UX professionals. Most recently, I dove into design on Socrata, a government data platform acquired by Tyler Technologies, the REI e-commerce website, the REI in-store mobile POS system, Intuit's QuickBooks Online, and a 5-star app Snap Payroll. I incorporate my user research background into my holistic design process, and am an alum of Bolt Peters, the late leading firm in remote user research. A retired semi-professional oboist, I studied Music Performance and Culture & Social Anthropology at Stanford University.
