As a user experience designer, I am passionate about solving problems using design and technology. Pixels matter because people matter. My “full stack” product design practice includes research, interaction design, testing and product management. I’m a perpetual user centered design advocate at work, in life and as a teacher at CU’s IXDMA graduate program. I When I am not working on my laptop tan, I enjoy outdoorsy activities and general food snobbery.

I started my career in New York City as a media planner. Then, I went back to school to learn about creating interactive products at a hip little program called Boulder Digital Works. After that, I moved to Los Angeles to where I worked at Saatchi LA, Trailer Park, and a couple of Silicon Beach's finest tech startups. I currently live in Boulder, CO and work as Product Design Lead at Gaia.
