With a background in cognitive psychology and mechanical engineering (Human Factors), I’ve worked at the forefront of Experience Design for over 20 years. In my career I’ve been a developer, information architect, researcher, and designer within small teams and large.
I take a human-centered approach to design—for both the people I design for and people I work with. I believe in an integrated, collaborative design process where every opinion is valid and the best solution prevails.
In 2016 I joined MileIQ, a 30-person, small-business startup that was acquired by Microsoft. I currently lead a multi-discplinary design team for Microsoft in San Francisco, which supports MileIQ, Spend, and other product initatives.
From 2011–2016 I led design for Ginger.io, an MIT-founded, mobile healthcare startup focused on mental health care (which is now Headspace Health). I was the sole designer for the first two years, and managed a small team of designers and developers from the outset.
We raised $28 million and were named one of The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Healthcare by Fast Company.
