Through my 15-year career as a designer, my area of expertise has evolved to designing digital product experiences for browsers, iOS, and Android.
I began my career in 2004, practicing traditional graphic design. A few years later, my background in computer science and technical writing began to pull me towards designing brochure websites, email campaigns, and other digital content. Eventually, my focus pivoted to web and native mobile apps. I’m happy to say that I haven’t looked back.
Before PayPal, I was a Product Design Lead for dscout and Zendesk Sell (formerly Base) during large growth periods for each company. Before that, I helped newly funded startups get their MVPs to market at Doejo, and designed print and digital things for Crate&Barrel, JAK Graphic Design, and freelance projects.
My leadership style is personally casual yet professionally earnest with a “whatever it takes” attitude. I am known for tight collaboration on teams I work with, bridging design, engineering, and business priorities to deliver delightful end-to-end experiences to the customer. I am inspired by Swiss and Scandinavian design and look for new ways to bring highly functional, simple, aesthetic experiences into my work.
I also experiment with app ideas on the side. One app is a simple tip calculator currently on the App Store, and another is in the works.
