Latest Work

I’m a problem solver. I use humanistic design thinking as a catalyst for change. I look to uncover latent needs, think big, then apply rapid design and prototyping to envision the possible.

I’m a digital director. I have directed cross-functional teams of product managers, designers, engineers, testers, and business leaders for an enterprise, a software company, and a consultancy.

I’m a UX designer at heart. I have a master’s degree and many years of experience designing user-centered solutions for winning brands in tech, retail, telco, textile, and financial services.
