I work with companies to improve their design practice while delivering great work.
I am based in San Diego, CA.
I have worked as an in-house contributor and manager for scaling startups such as Renovate America, LivingSocial, and CustomInk.
As a consultant, I worked as an individual contributor, locally or remotely, for companies such as EightShapes, AKQA, the Mag7 Collective, and Wunderman. Clients included AARP, VideoBlocks, Tivvy, Yahoo!, George Washington University, and more.
With every team, I focus on three things:
Craft: Facilitating and supporting the design process, assuring we execute at the highest level by leveraging research, collaborating with stakeholders, and refining our work through objective-based critique.
Infrastructure: Keeping everything that supports the craft operational; the office environment, design tools, and sample agendas for design activities.
Personal development: A commitment to helping my team use that time for growth through personal objectives and new challenges.
I have experience in user research, product strategy, and interaction design, especially in eCommerce and FinTech.
