Ensure your product or site makes sense to your users and achieves your business goals. I'd love to help you tell your story the right way.

Get in Touch

As a freelance UX designer, I’ve spent many years designing experiences for large companies. I was the UX lead/manager for DFP by Google for several years, before serving as the interim design lead for Google Classroom. I have also worked on product design for Apple, The Paperless Post, Conde Nast, and countless other software products and marketing websites.

Now, I work as a consultant helping clients identify their business objectives and users’ motivations. I work with them to design high-level and low-level experiences and user flows that make sense. UX and product design consulting might include:

  • Conducting user research to determine user personas and use cases
  • Conducting usability studies to identify pain points in existing UIs and workflows
  • Creating user flows and high-level information architecture site maps
  • Constructing wireframes to show content organization
  • Creating prototypes and usability testing to test design concepts

Learn more about how I view UX as a discipline is my recent writing, What is UX Design?
