Welcome - I am a digital product designer based in San Francisco, CA. I focus on digital product UX/UI design, product branding and design system development. I enjoy engaging in big picture design strategy thinking, all the way through to pushing pixels to perfection and everything in between. I consider myself a hybrid product designer, executing interaction as well as visual ui design to a very high degree. Since leaving Yahoo in May of 2015 I have worked as a consultant/freelancer working with established companies, startups as well as for other design agencies. My training and professional practice includes graphic as well as industrial or product design. I earned a masters degree in industrial design from the Rhode Island School of Design and an undergrad degree in graphic design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In my junior year I was fortunate enough to study abroad at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle, England. Fast-forward four years. While at RISD, I had an internship at a Warsaw based product design firm and got the chance to design city trams as well as brush up on my Polish. After graduate school I worked briefly for a product design firm, got married then set up my own one man shop and engaged in identity, print, web and product design projects for clients large and small across the country. In short, this diverse and rather unconventional experience has given me a unique and holistic perspective - something that suites me incredible well when thinking about and engaging in the design process. I have been recognized for my graphic, product and web design work and have had my work published in Graphis, Critique, The Boston Globe, Communication Arts, ID and Newsweek. All creative and design work presented here including the development of this site was executed solely by yours truly. Thanks for visiting!
