I’m an award-winning User Experience Director, Designer, and Consultant with 14 years' experience creating richly branded, interactive experiences that range from mobile applications, next-gen prototypes, products and software for agencies, startups, and Fortune 500 companies.

I combine creativity and innovation with a methodological rigor founded in the best practices of user-centered design and a deep understanding of users' needs, motivations, and behaviors. This approach has resulted in 30% year-over-year business growth, 25 million monthly visitors, and lasting education to early age school kids.


As a leader, I’m a dedicated and enthusiastic champion and mentor for my team. As Director of User Experience at ModCloth, the UX team had a 100% retention rate. The designers I’ve mentored there have gone on to hold leadership roles at Google, Twitter, and innovative startups.

Outside of work I play a 100-year-old violin I’ve owned since I was a kid, I sail competitively, throw pottery, and travel for wildlife photography.
