I’m an experienced product design director with a passion for developing big ideas and then working with a team to make them a reality. I lead by inspiring people and encouraging collaboration to arrive at the best solutions. I have an extensive background in directing design and engineering teams to develop large-scale, web-based applications for desktop and mobile.
I currently head up product design at Flite, located in beautiful San Francisco. I lead a team of UX designers, creative designers, and product managers and help to manage the larger product engineering team. Prior to joining Flite, I was a Lead Interaction Designer for Digitas, helping companies such as Sephora, Safeway, and Microsoft with their online experience designs and strategy. Before my role at Digitas, I was the Senior User Experience Designer for Vignette, responsible for the UX design of one of their major products, Vignette Application Builder. Previous to joining Vignette, I was an Interface Developer for Sapient.
I hold an Associates Degree of Arts in visual communications from the Art Institute of Atlanta. After four years as contributing editor for CreativePro.com, an online resource for creative professionals, I went on to author my first book, Adobe Creative Suite 2 How-Tos (Adobe Press, 2005).
