I wear many hats:
Whatever you call it, I’m always focused on how my work makes life better for people. I’m currently focused on User Experience / Service Design and have 7+ years experience bringing a human touch to digital products from responsive websites to OTT to mobile apps.
I started my career in architecture and urban design, working at firms such as WXY and arquitectura 911sc, where I honed an ability to find clarity in complexity—transforming complicated ideas into legible, resilient systems. I’m passionate about the design of cities and am involved with many advocacy organizations working to improve transit, public space, cycling, and walking in New York City and nationally, such as Riders Alliance and Transportation Alternatives.
My interests in thinking about human interaction eventually led me towards UX design: most recently I was Senior User Experience Designer at Objective Subject, where I brought a human touch to projects for a wide range of civic tech clients. Prior to that I was Mobile Interactive Designer at CBS Interactive, where I oversaw the deployment of the CBSN network across a full range of digital platforms.
My experience drafting construction documents for the built environment brought technical expertise to OS’s wayfinding and environmental graphics projects, alongside digital experience documents like site maps, user journey maps, wireframes, and interaction prototypes.
I’ve taught design at Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Parsons The New School for Design, and hold a master’s degree from Yale.
I grew up in Dayton, Ohio and now live in New York City. Other places I’ve lived: Cincinnati; Washington, DC; Shropshire, UK; London; Gard, France; Rome; Tamil Nadu, India; Mexico City, and New Haven.
