Spending time with my wife, our dog, and our two cats. I also enjoy PC gaming, movies, binge-watching television shows, kayaking, hiking, cocktails, and a newfound enjoyment for cooking.
I've approached and refined my craft through details and efficiency, focusing on visual design, design systems, and tooling. As an individual contributor and people leader, helping my teams deliver experiences that are mindful, equitable, and accessible hold near to my heart. I work towards creating open spaces where individuals can find comfort amongst each other to solve the most challenging problems together—an environment where design can lead from the front. And most importantly, working towards finding opportunities for myself and my team to grow as leaders and lean into the individual skills that make us the experts we are.
Bringing product and tech partners on the design process journey has become increasingly important to me over the years. From research and discovery, through definition and design, to delivery—doing it as a shared experience sheds light on the importance of our practice, helps build relationships with our partners, and lets our partners champion the voice of the customer with us.
