About

I am a senior UX+UI design manager with over 20 years of experience in creating enterprise software. My areas of expertise include:

  • Design management and leadership
  • Innovation program creation
  • Creative team building
  • Design thinking
  • Prototype design and production
  • UX and visual design for enterprise software
  • Graphic design and branding

The intersection of art and technology has always been my happy place.

I majored in music engineering as an undergrad because I love music and I was pretty good at calculus and physics. In grad school, I studied technical theater because I wanted to do sound design and I liked hanging around the creative drama people.

When I was done with school in 1995, and the web was just getting started, my Photoshop and BBEdit skills meant that I could get a job making web sites. 

Over 20 years later, I am an expert in designing enterprise software and managing design teams. I still like grappling with the mix of art and technology in the work I do. And I still like hanging out with creative people who challenge the status quo and prove that enterprise software can be delightful, elegant and usable.
