I’m an experienced UX / product design leader 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’ve also been instrumental in defining the brand and marketing strategy for startups I’ve helped to build out.
I currently lead a product design team at Pinterest focused on growth, content optimization, and advertising tools. I recently headed up product design at Flite, located in beautiful San Francisco. There I led a team of UX designers, creative designers, and product managers and helped to manage the larger product engineering team. Flite was acquired by Snap Inc. in 2016. 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.
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.
