My work

My work is the product of empathy-driven research, deep systems thinking, and exacting craft.

I lead with respect for the team I collaborate with and compassion for the humans I build for.


Currently, I am the Principal Product Designer at project44. I steward the design vision across all product verticals, establish standards and patterns for our design system, and shape the future of our product’s visual language.

Previously, I was the Director of Product Design at Hologram. I led a team of product designers in a rapidly changing startup environment as we turned connectivity into software.

Before that, I was a Senior Interface Designer for award-winning design firm MINIMAL. I bridged the gap between hardware and software for a wide range of startup and corporate clients.
