About Me

A few quick thoughts. Want more specifics about my background and experience? Check out my LinkedIn, or just get in touch!

I thrive on...

organizing chaos. Whether it's distilling pages of research into a one-line problem statement or creating a new coherent workflow, I love finding common themes, connecting dots, and clearly communicating ideas.

I believe...

products should have a clear purpose that makes an impact in people's lives. I've always been passionate about discovering diverse perspectives and I keep people's stories, behaviors, needs and goals at the center of my work.

Outside of work...

I can be found at in improv class, trying new restaurants, or reading the news. I bake in the winter, make ice cream in the summer, and swim all year.

Let's chat!

The best way to get to know more about me and my work is through conversation. Drop me a note, and I'll happily find a time to talk. 

You can also find me on LinkedIn.
