In a nutshell, I design to empower people and am driven by impact. From product strategy to scripting—I strive for elegant design. Located in San Francisco, I am a multidisciplinary designer focused on anticipating and testing users needs to create experiences that are simple, beautiful, and delightful. Below are a few examples of my professional work:
Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you’ve ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you’ve experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software. Autodesk gives you the power to make anything.
SUPER is a social app allowing people to create little works of art. The right composition of images and text can convey more emotion than either images or text alone. Super uses “starters”—like MY FAVORITE or DID YOU KNOW—along with suggested images to make posting in the community fun. It's a new and unique way to connect with people on a deeper level.
Architechie is an organization founded by a group of former architects that bridges the gap between architecture and technology. The core group of founders is now working in fields including experience design, augmented reality, smart homes, and transit innovation.
We hold workshops, guest lectures, and panel discussions, promoting discourse related to design, emerging tech, and the built environment.
I love to learn new things! And aspiring to grow as a designer I seek out opportunities to explore projects that might hone new skills. Below are a few examples of my speculative work:
Google approached me with a fun prompt to design a mobile app that enables you to impulsively identify and purchase a garment or accessory that you see in real life. This speculative project includes an end-to-end flow covering the experience from the moment of awareness to purchase completion. Go "pocket" someone's look.
This speculative project had the objective to identify some "quick" fixes that could be implemented tomorrow and improve the experience.
After a long weekend of hard work at the Philips Healthcare hackathon, we presented with poise and were rewarded with a 3rd Place honor! The judges were kind and said we had the best presentation and most complete product of the entire competition. We were very happy, low on sleep, and looking forward to the next one!
