See how I've helped others reach their goals.
How a brand is experienced is just as important as how it looks.
Your business or product is judged by how your customers think and feel. People want to be treated like people, and design problems should be approached with the human experience in mind – along with data. Most recently the Art Director for Resound, I led design, shaped brands, and helped clients connect deeper with their audiences. Previously I was the Art Director for Frontiers, a humanitarian non-profit; before that I was the Senior User Experience Designer at meltmedia, where I collaborated on websites and mobile apps. I understand users but – more importantly – I understand people and how they want to connect to your brand.
Would we make a good team? Consider 3 things:
I will explore your business goals and how to reach them.
What are you trying to accomplish? I'll research the landscape and constraints, and then offer you my best laid solution. A successful goal is a measurable goal (even fuzzy feelings can be measured).
I'm not afraid to argue (in a good way, of course).
I'm always looking out for the best interests of my clients and achieving those goals we talked about. If I don't agree with you it's because I want you to succeed.
I balance grand visions with practical realities.
Working with a partner (or leading a team) is a bit of a dance. Keeping the doers from crushing the dreamers is one part. Encouraging the dreamers to anticipate roadblocks is another.

- I've participated in Women in UX at Twitter because I'm passionate about the advancement of women in technology and design.
- I'm great at talking to strangers. Seriously, I even gave a talk on it at Ignite Phoenix: The Art of Talking to Strangers. I've also spoken at Adobe's Creative Jam.
- Side projects keep my mind fresh (my most recent was Coffee Bureau which I put together with my coffee roasting husband).
- I'm located in Tempe, Arizona: the greatest town in America – except maybe Pawnee, Indiana.
Just want to meet up? Inquiries for chats, coffees, and cocktails are always welcome. Work related (or not), I'm sure there's plenty for us to talk about.
