Synthesizing Ideas into Measurable Outcomes

About me

About Me


I am an accomplished user experience designer who pursues solutions through analysis, collaboration and iteration.

With success across multiple industries—EdTech, FinTech, LegalTech, MedTech, social media—my diverse background includes roles in agencies, corporations and startups.

Before designing experiences I coded them, and before that I studied philosophy. Like others in the dotcom era, I left one career for the Web and after a crash course in design, I took up development—my background in formal logic lent itself to markup languages.

But with an eye for design and a mind for organization, I began defining the experiences I coded and eventually went all in on user experience design.

Outside of work I teach design for UC Berkeley Extension and philosophy for City College of San Francisco.
