Hello. I’m a product designer. I spent four years doing spatial analytics for first responders in New York City, and absolutely loved it. Before that, I designed and built physical spaces. Now I create digital spaces. Expertise spans user experience, interaction design, and data visualization.
I’m a product designer with a multidisciplinary background and over 15 years of experience in the trenches. Digital 3d modeling led me to data visualization - which brought me to product design. Working primarily in the ed-tech space, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate on apps, websites, and all the research and design processes that allow designers to contribute - including data visualization, user experience, and visual design.
I’ve implemented live style guides on large scale agile builds, developed mobile apps on the fly with small, lean, cross-functional teams, designed customer development experiments in early product phases, and produced fine grained illustrations to support the kind visual storytelling that will keep tomorrow’s students engaged. Previously, I adapted to professional environments ranging from $400M private construction projects, to small public R&D procurements, to emergency management field operations.
I am passionate about working at the intersection of technology, data, and design - and am currently a UX Director at Moody’s Analytics.
I also maintain a rigorous creative portfolio that has been published and exhibited internationally – most recently at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York City and in d3:dialog>assemble - international journal of architecture and design (volume 01). My work has been supported by diverse sources - from the Rockefeller and Gates Foundations to the US Department of Homeland Security. I am a registered architect in the state of New York.
