With more than two decades of design experience in a wide range of industries, I bring a versatile and varied perspective to each and every design project. For the past decade I have been focused on building and leading user-centered design teams. This has often required establishing design and design thinking inside of organizations that have yet to discover the benefits of including design methodologies earlier into the product definition process.

Much of my recent experience revolves around enabling, mentoring, and managing designers as they operate within their larger agile development teams. I have experience in small, medium, and large organizations. This experience has given me a deep understanding for appropriate methods for empowering lean UX teams that can fail fast and iterate quickly vs teams where more process and predictability can enable greater scale.

I'm forever a designer at heart and a life-long learner. I believe in leading by example and always staying sharp by practicing the craft of design.

Method & Process

I have had good success with the double diamond go wide, then narrow philosophy within discovery and design sprints. This approach seeks to maximize data and design idea generation, while keeping teams aligned on a common problem that ultimately delivers a more focused solution.
