What I Do

I'm a product designer for mobile and desktop — a hybrid user experience and interface designer. I collaborate with and lead design teams to ship industry disrupting products on-time and on-budget. Having worked from ideation to the launch of multiple products, I have a deep respect for each phase of the product lifecycle and to the dedication of its contributors.

UX Strategy

I conduct user research, establish interaction flows and wireframes, produce interactive prototypes, and rapidly iterate as feedback rolls in.

My Story

I seek that elusive aha moment: the instant everything falls into place; all feels right and understood.

I led the visual design design team at Jive Software with crew members spanning Portland to San Francisco to Tel Aviv on a suite of social collaboration products. The experience has been incredible, affording me the ability to talk directly with customers, perform user testing, guide design patterns, keep my hands dirty with visual design, and speak annually at the JiveWorld conference in Las Vegas to share deep dives on our design thinking and ongoing product evolution.

Previously I wore several hats as the sole designer for a 20-person PaaS startup defining the product user experience, designing the interface, and contributing to front end development to launch a private beta and quickly iterating toward public release.

Prior to focusing on product interface design, I led digital design at a Portland creative agency for a wide range of clients, specializing in B2B products and services.

When working with design teams I advocate design exploration and encourage personal growth. I value the use of design systems to steward design efficiency and consistency, coupled with close collaboration to create strong connections, broaden perspectives and move the needle toward a better product.
