I am a proven UX lead offering fresh insight and a passion for innovation. I have years of experience and have a successful track record in planning, designing, developing, and managing digital-related products, projects, and campaigns for large companies, tech giants and start-ups.

I have the proven ability to produce high-quality work quickly, iterating toward the best solution. Through years of experience, I have gained keen, in-depth understanding of Internet tools, technologies, companies, trends, and revenue models.

My passion for utilizing design thinking to solve complex problems drives my approach to each solution I'm tasked with creating.
I have work with some brilliant and talented designers, product managers, engineering leaders, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. With each experience I have gained a tremendous amount of wisdom and knowledge. This started with my first job as a designer, where I helped a talented team at Fidelity Investments implement their first Intranet site.

I also worked as a freelance designer working for national agencies. I gained a lot of success being the Creative Lead on national campaigns with major brands. I later started my own successful digital creative agency, where I was Head of Design for over 6 years. I was fortunate to work with clients like Amazon, Disney, Sony, and Canon.

I have spent years honing my craft as a designer in both visual design and user experience design. I thrive best in situations that allow me to draw on my years of experience utilizing a combination of visual and UI design with understanding the needs of the user. I am able to find impactful and relevant solutions by focusing on the user and ensuring the design best meets what the objective the product and user are trying to achieve.

Most recently I have been working with the talented people who have been creating some of the brilliant products in the software industry. I enjoyed my journey this far, and I know another adventure awaits.
