Hey there! I am a product designer and organizational culture enthusiast who lives in Oakland, CA.
Most recently, I was a design lead at San Francisco Digital Services. Before that, I worked at a series of enterprise software companies, most often as the first designer.
I believe I can make the most impact by building tools that improve the whole team’s chances of shipping great work. To that end, I spend a lot of time thinking about culture, process, and design infrastructure.
