Instruction

Previously, I led UX Design programs for 100+ students at General Assembly, mentoring designers, crafting curriculum, and lecturing on design thinking, accessibility, interaction design, and more. I love teaching and working to solve the broken design education system.

About

I'm a user experience designer, strategist, and educator, focused on creating accessible, understandable, and meaningful digital experiences.


Throughout my career, I've tried to follow some guiding principles to respect, empower, and advocate for all users. Some tenets of my design philosophy are to be:

Inclusive

I believe in the power of including and learning from all people with a range of perspectives, and I believe that accessibility can never be an after-thought.

Intuitive

As Steve Krug wrote, “Don’t Make Me Think”. I place a heavy emphasis on cognitive load, plain language, and learnability of products.

Invisible

A perfect design goes unnoticed. Our products are the means to an end for users, not a piece of art to marvel at.

Something that stands out about my career is the breadth of work. My resume spans from leading a boutique agency's design practice, to in-house e-commerce design, to freelance contracts with start-ups, to teaching UX Design courses, and finally to leading design in my current role at Dotdash Meredith.

Outside the office, I'm in avid pursuit of all things music, games, and art. I live in Seattle, where you can generally find me at your nearest ice rink, concert venue, or movie theater. If you're still curious, you can find more on my About page, or reach out to me on LinkedIn.
