UX Designer | Product Storyteller
I’m a UX Designer based in Phoenix, Arizona. I believe in pen before pixel, user testing, and research. Drawing on my extensive design and development work, I use my skills to craft the best experience for your app users and website customers. My work solves real problems by getting the best out of the technology and the people on my team. I can be found advocating for diversity in tech, and explaining to my daughter that Google isn't a real person. Hooked on mobile; you can hear me talk about it on Material Podcast, a weekly show about Google and Android on Relay FM. I was once retweeted by First Lady Michelle Obama.
Interviewed and highlighted in various publications to discuss the future of mobile, Material Design and tips for crafting the best user experience.
