As a designer turned product leader in tech, my focus has always been the people on the other end of the screen trying to achieve their goals. With a strong foundation in human-centered design, I believe it's time to start looking beyond the human problem and focus on a systems level approach for more equitable solutions for both humanity and the world surrounding us.
I've been building websites in one form or another since 1996. My earliest professional experience with the web was as a frontend developer and graphic designer, eventually transitioning into a user experience design role that allowed me to harness both my educational background in design and my desire to build digital experiences.
User experience and product design roles led me to product owner and product manager roles and eventually a director position helping to level up the team around me. I've worked in an agency environment, freelance, ecommerce, email marketing, video production, hospitality, and the world of stock art.
I'm currently in a product management position while also enrolled as a graduate student at the Savannah College of Art and Design working toward my MFA in Graphic Design and Visual Experience.
