Bio: Part designer, part anthropologist, part intrepid explorer of the intersection between culture, art, and technology. I've spent my career deep in thought, exploration, or fun, building products for start ups and Fortune 500 companies alike.These experiences include but are not limited to creating apps for the first bluetooth fitness bands (nod if you remember those, whew), measuring responses to salient media, building knowledge sharing platforms for world class thinkers, and diving into wellness apps before “wellness” and “app” were words you could hashtag.

I got my start as a researcher and have a background in anthropology. I’ve done fieldwork on buses and loading docks, in hospitals and classrooms. I’ve even ridden shotgun with truckers. I practice UX as a mission to humanize technology and believe that design is far more interesting when limited and challenged by real people, with real problems to solve.
