Design strategy for cross-functional teams
Over the past 8+ years, I’ve deliberately chosen roles which span
between design and development. I enjoy strategizing across all
phases of the product design lifecycle and have tackled some tough
problems from designing learning experiences to financial tools, all
launched for real people.
In addition to designing products and websites, I’ve taught
Front-end development at
General Assembly and regularly
mentor designers looking to add designing in-browser to their
skillset. I also speak at
and have been featured in
about design and development.
While working full-time at CodePen,
I’m getting my masters in
Human Centered Design and Engineering
at the University of Washington where I’ve been mentoring designers
& ux researchers looking to break into the field.
In my free time, I paint
abstract acrylic art which have
been featured in galleries and on art walks around Seattle. I highly
value the balance between work and personal life, and believe having
creative projects outside of the digital world brings greater
insight to my work.
