I love solving real-world user problems through collaboration, feedback, research and iteration; anchoring myself in user-centered design while still adding a lil surprise and delight ("wouldn't this be awesome?!"). Work should be fun, n'est-ce pas?
I prefer to move fast and release products out into the wild to see how they really perform under normal conditions. Then learn and iterate.
I started my design career by taking General Assembly's UX immersive class and fell in love with it. My first creative role was at an agency where I worked with 20+ clients in 3 years, workshopping with teams to bring apps from idea to reality.
I've since moved in-house to Sense where I'm the designer creating, refining, and nurturing a variety of different projects (iOS, Android, Web apps) through user feedback and incremental improvements. We are a mission driven company and believe that helping homeowners manage and understand their energy use will collectively slow climate change.
Sense is a data-rich company, so the exciting puzzle to solve is to take all of that data and convert it into digestible chunks of actionable information. While our user base is still the early-adopter type, the long play is to bring home intelligence to every household. Bridging the gap between those two personas is also a challenge and a balancing act.
On the side, I do side projects. I'm the co-creator/founder of Wrkflows, a web app that serves as a consumer-facing knowledge base and searchable in-app widget. I also do contract work for Tablelist, a nightlife online reservation and venue management platform.
