About

I am an experienced end-to-end Digital Product Designer

I work for clients in Denver, Boulder, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Austin, Toronto, Bangalore, and Singapore, with bootstrapping startups and Fortune 50 companies.

I believe in an iterative, user-centered design process and participate in all phases of a product, from discovery to delivery to iteration.

I collaborate with product managers and engineers to ensure our customers' success to create value for the business. I focus on the customer experience over time as they interact with the product, brand, and company as a whole.

Currently, I'm a Principal Product Designer at Synack.
