I'm a passionate maker who is deeply committed to designing fantastic user experiences that drive engagement and product growth while meeting the user's needs. I've designed for clients including Microsoft, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, McGraw Hill, Charles Schwab, and Avanade. For a more complete picture, download my resume.
Because my skill set includes front-end development, I have rare insight into the engineering capabilities and compromises that often need to be accounted for when bringing a product to market. As a tenured designer, I've been directly involved in many product disciplines including marketing, program management, development, partner relations, stakeholder presentations, and management. I bring great value to every project I work on due to this depth and breadth of skill and experience.
During my career, I've worked with some amazing people on an array of fabulous projects. Here is a sampling of what some people I've worked directly with say about my skills and professionalism:
