As an Experience Design leader, I love delivering inspired ideas to completion through research, data, and analytics. I’ve managed and mentored creative teams from 5 to 55 designers. Designing projects from mobile applications to large-scale enterprise platforms for companies such as Toyota, Lexus, The Olympics, FX Networks, PlutoTV, HP, Adobe, Honda, CNN, City National Bank, and Warner Bros.
Formerly the UX Design Director at Saatchi & Saatchi, the exclusive agency for Toyota, I’m currently the Head of Design for Devblock. A product design and development agency. I also mentor at the General Assembly in Santa Monica and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
Studying at Art Center was transformative for me. It inspired me to always be questioning, listening, and collaborating. As such, I have brought many Art Center principles into my management style. Open collaboration with everyone, no ideas are bad, etc.
I believe my ‘why’ is to make other people’s lives easier and I am truly happiest when achieving that goal.
