Previously, I worked at a design-driven healthcare IT company called Alere ACS. I helped evangelize design systems and rapid prototyping among my fellow designers. I also wrote the CSS for our Web apps, and worked to break down silos between teams.
Before Alere, I got my start as the first designer at codeREADr. I refocused our iPhone app around a more user-centric design, and learned to contribute wherever I was most needed, even if it fell outside my qualifications. For example, I improved the company’s release engineering strategy to increase system uptime.
In 2014, I moved from Somerville, MA to Oakland, CA for its climate and walkability. In retrospect, it seems like a good decision.
I like watching and occasionally making films, biking ten miles to a cafe, absorbing culture in every medium, and setting time aside for reflection and synthesis.
