A better way always starts with listening.
My journey to design started with a workshop and a chat over coffee. Breakthroughs and impactful life moments happen when you least expect it. This is the story of how I stayed ready and jumped at the opportunity to start a life in design.
There are no failures, just findings. Design thinking is an effective way to approach complex problems. From lean experimentation to effective advocation, my passion is to seamlessly improve how people interact with technology.
Every user learns in a different way and part of my job is to find the right vehicle for information. Videos that are product-centric have worked well for me thus far in academia and at work. If you are interested in examples of media that I have produced and distributed, check out the Work section.
Having a B.A. in Computer Systems, I understand the logic behind coding languages and have paired with engineers on past projects. This experience helps when assessing feasibility and scalability in the development cycle.
For every team that I have worked on in design or prior to, I pride myself on being adaptable. In the past that has meant assuming product manager responsibilities, writing .CSS sheets, facilitating stakeholder updates and speaking at town halls. If it helps us hit our goals, I’m in.
