Summary

I am passionate about creating usable, accessible, and enjoyable digital experiences from the ground up. I have worked with incredibly talented people across different areas of expertise in product development.

I have reached a certain maturity level in my career that allows me to work in product strategy and development, mentor, guide, and lead others in the pursuit of best-in-class experiences.

I have designed application (SaaS) experiences for B2C and B2B markets (enterprise-level) for over 20 years. As a result, I've honed my ability to thrive in the chaos of speed-to-market with adaptability and humor. I understand that change is inevitable and necessary, and I recognize it as an opportunity to improve and do something greater. My experience, coupled with my business acuity and education, makes me an excellent fit for product design and user experience roles.
