I built my first website when I was 12, right around the time we got our first modem at home. It was made with a lot of photos and HTML tables and was about how cool the Bugatti EB110 was (I put it up on Angelfire). I’ve been messing around on the internet ever since.
I came to user experience from software engineering. I was working as a front-end developer and ended up being responsible for the design and user experience of the projects I was working on as well as the code. Since then I've made user experience my main focus, though splitting the line between design and technology is still where I feel most comfortable.
At the moment I'm working on StandOut (a talent activation platform) at ADP in Los Angeles. I get to work on a variety of projects, from the core platform to administration and reporting tools. I'm having fun building a fledgling design system here. Before ADP I was at GREE International, designing and developing various internal tools for their mobile games. I got to work on analytics dashboards as well as tools that streamlined and automated how certain parts of the organization operated.
I like being involved in projects from their inception and believe that design needs to have a seat at the table throughout an organization to make an impact. I love creating simple, functional, and beautiful interfaces. I'm currently very excited about design systems and how they can create a shared language across an organization.
When I'm not working I like to cook, consume art in its various forms, read about economics and politics, think about interior lighting, and do yoga. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, the best way to reach me is via email.
