After more than a decade spent in product research and value-centered design,  I now manage a brilliant design team.

Previously, I designed, prototyped, (sometimes) developed, and evaluated mobile, web, and desktop applications. I’ve lead products through the full product design process, including: brainstorming, research, user flows, task analysis, wireframes, mockups, interactive prototypes, usability evaluations, project management, and software development. all_the_things.jpg

I am interested in solving meaningful problems for all kinds of humans by quickly iterating and evaluating solutions within a collaborative environment. fixparrot.gif

Work history

Currently, I’m the Director of Product Design at Mark43 managing a team of designers & an engineer developing the latest in public safety software.

Previously, I was a Lead UX Designer at CarGurus designing products for consumers and dealers, a Senior UX Designer at Confer Health (now Vital) working on a consumer at-home diagnostics platform, a Senior UX Designer at CloudLock/Cisco; a UX Designer at Imprivata; and a Research Fellow at the Wellesley College Human-Computer Interaction Lab and Olin College of Engineering.

While at CloudLock, I worked on their cloud security product that visualized and alerted security administrators about security risks found in their company’s cloud services.

During my time at Imprivata, I was the lead UX designer for the Hands-Free Authentication product and co-led the OneSign desktop authentication experience redesign.

Throughout my time at the HCI Lab, I led several teams to design and develop award winning software (2011, 2012, 2013). In addition, I built the largest documented conference table-sized multi-touch surface; created an automated data collection, aggregation, and visualization tool: GreenTouch; and served as a key organizer for the Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2012 conference all with Dr. Orit Shaer.

Outside of work

I’m reading up on the latest in tech and sustainability; cooking delicious vegan food, or pushing my physical limits biking, hiking, practicing/teaching yoga, running, or SUPing.
