I practice design thinking for problem solving, to improve lives, transform perspectives, and reshape experiences. It's a beautiful thing.
Places I've Worked
The Boeing Company
"Simplicity. Complexity. Value."
Being a product designer for Boeing isn't for the faint of heart. As part of the design team in the Enterprise IT Program Management Office (PMO), I am responsible for bringing a user-centered approach to the IT business management systems that drive the delivery of digital products and services to the business. I've learned that with the right variables, you will gain the answers you seek, and that—while complex systems can't be simplified—you can use principles of simplicity to better understand them.
General Assembly Space, LLC.
"Psychological Safety, Bravery, Improvisation."
As an instructor of UX Design, I've mentored dozens of career changers to become UX'rs. I've learned to be more direct and pointed in my feedback focused on helping someone grow. And I've discovered how delightful it is to watch designers build their creative confidence.
Carestream Dental, LLC.
"Deliver to the customer, not teammates."
In my role as an Interaction Designer, I leveled up my leadership, collaboration, and coding skills and honed both AGILE & Waterfall software development methodologies. It's where I learned how to deliver value to customers and build a team, rather than toss things over a wall and hope for the best.
Monumental Interactive, LLC.
"Edit. Simplify. Prioritize."
As Idea and User Experience Architect, I learned to consult, to listen, elaborate, and to envision. Most of all I learned to edit because good design is always succinct.
AT&T, Inc. - Human Factors Lab (Atlanta)
"Usability is fundamental."
As an assistant researcher with AT&T's Human Factors Lab in Atlanta, I conducted usability studies and worked closely with experienced researchers. I learned how to observe, ask the right questions, and present actionable insights to our stakeholders.
