There's so much at stake.

For digital products and services, crafting an experience that clicks with users is mission critical. I view UX research and design as a core competency for businesses who want to align products with users and deliver real value.

As a product designer at an open-deck freight platform startup, I led design from generative research to launch. As a senior interaction designer at Huge I bridged content strategy, visual design, and development with UX-focused workshops, research, wireframing, and prototyping.

I look for opportunities to bring users into my design process. I cold call, set up testing labs at conferences, conduct field work, and design surveys that help me see things from their perspective. From paper to Sketch the user stays front and center in every screen and flow I design.
