About

I’m a Senior Product Designer 10 years of experience, focusing on B2B SaaS products.

I thrive in complex, ambiguous problem spaces

I love getting into the details of complex systems, setting a vision, and finding a path to simplicity. As a researcher, I thrive when faced with ambiguous challenges that lack a clear solution path.

I get stuff done

I have worked on small, scrappy teams and know how to make an impact with limited resources. I use research insights to find opportunities, set a vision, and help the team understand what problems to address and why they’re a priority.

 

I build teams

My passion is building team culture and helping to level up the way we work. Teams make better software when everyone is engaged and supporting each other in building a shared vision. I help my teammates understand what customer problems we’re solving so that each team member can bring their perspective to creating a solution.

As an educator, I’ve taught courses in interaction design and UX research at a university design program. Creating learning experiences is a challenging and deeply rewarding design problem that has influenced how I contribute to software teams.
