About Me

I have worked in product design for the last 25 years, from startups and large corporate banking, to IT consulting and founder of an award winning boutique design firm. From strategy to execution, I help teams improve performance and deliver measurable value to the end user's experience. The breadth of my hands-on experience range from user research and testing to ux design and prototyping and UI design.

Most recently, I served a team of 18 researchers, designers, front-end developers, and content strategists on a large SAFe® Agile program, where we received the highest UX maturity rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid's HCD Center of Excellence.

I speak when I can, write industry related articles often, and I mentor at a local non-profit tech incubator called GroundSwell.
