About Me

I am a designer, researcher, and thinker focused on delivering strategic and meaningful user experiences. I draw from over ten years of experience across a spectrum of design, research, and strategy skills to solve tough problems with smart answers for the ever-changing information landscape. I started working in New York for Victoria's Secret and then went on to design flight decks at Boeing. I worked at Microsoft for a while and was involved in Microsoft Dynamics, Windows Phone, Volume Licensing and the Microsoft Store. I now work at Amazon as part of the international business group.


My days are spent focusing on design and the user experience, but I dedicate my evenings to spending time with the love of my life, painting or hiking. The northwest has been my home for the last fifteen years and I adore it.
