Fifteen years of professional experience designing elegant user-centered interactive products for high-profile clients in the fields of digital media, finance, consulting, government, public relations, big tech, pharmaceuticals and sports.

Recent work has focused on enterprise campaign management software, responsive design and mobile prototyping. I’m an advocate for Agile, rapid iterations and user testing. Client-facing, detail-oriented and comfortable with multiple projects. Good at coming into a project that is already underway, rapidly assimilating information, and getting high-quality deliverables out the door. My goals are to have fun while helping the end user do things more easily, to collaborate, and bring creativity into every project.
