Background

For the past 11 years, I've been honored to lead sharp teams and design meaningful web and mobile applications for consumers.

 

 

In Brief

I'm currently working as a User Experience Designer at Google.

Previously, I was a Product Designer at SmugMug making photo sharing simpler and more beautiful. Before that I was Lead Designer at Samsung where I worked on the next big thing in mobile experiences for the Galaxy and Note products.

Just before that I was Design Director for DSW Shoes, designing the brand's debut mobile commerce site and redesigning several large-scale applications for dsw.com.

From 2003 to 2008, I worked both full-time and as a freelance consultant for startups and blue chip brands in the heartland of the Midwest (where I was previously based).
