After more than 20 years, I still love getting up every day and tackling product design challenges: evolving audiences, changing technologies and shifting business needs. An interaction designer at heart, I am experienced in all aspects of the design process, managing design teams, and collaborating with product, engineering, and leadership.
I have hands-on experience in design thinking workshops, user interviews, research insights, design process definition, strategy & planning, problem definition, user story mapping, dual-track agile, design reviews, 1:1s, mentorship, enablement, development handoff, accessbility, user testing, analytics, a/b testing, NPS, html/css/js, code reviews, design pairing.
I understand the full lifecycle of product development and can easily adapt to changing situations to keep work flowing, while maintaining a strong design process, practice and culture. I'm always happy to dig in and get things done and bring a good dose of humor to my daily interactions. I currently work 100% remote and am comfortable managing designers at all expertise levels and working across timezones and cultures.
I recently built Bitsmachine to help job applicants quickly customize their cover letters and résumés. It allows you to manage all the parts of your résumé like a database, so you can easily tailor components and customize every application.
I would usually job search in the mornings, with only 20 minutes to spare. This tool helps me customize my applications quickly and track their statuses over time.
I have been exploring 3D printing and electronics, including building hand-wired keyboards and a macropad.
