I am a hands‑on design leader making better, more thoughtful software experiences for consumer products, entertainment, and services. Currently, I live in Seattle, Washington and work at Amazon. At the end of the summer in 2016, I moved back to the Pacific Northwest from Los Angeles, where I worked as a Senior Product Designer at DogVacay. Before moving to Southern California, I lived in Seattle for 11 years, most recently as the first designer in the satellite offices of both Facebook and Hulu. I got my start as an Interaction Designer and web developer at Philips Design after graduating with Architecture Degrees from MIT and Georgia Tech. During the early stages of my career, I worked in agencies and spent 5½ years at Teague, where I was hired as a Senior Designer and promoted to the position of Interaction Design Manager. After leaving agency life behind, I was fortunate to find opportunities as a freelance designer on the Hewlett‑Packard WebOS Touchpad and various product strategies at HTC.
