Welcome! - I am a digital product designer with over 10 years of experience, specializing in complex, technical tool and platform ux design. I enjoy engaging in big picture design strategy thinking, all the way through to pushing pixels to perfection and everything in between. I consider myself a hybrid product designer, executing interaction as well as visual ui design to a very high degree. My training and professional practice includes graphic as well as industrial or product design. I earned a masters degree in industrial design from the Rhode Island School of Design and an undergrad degree in graphic design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In my junior year I was fortunate enough to study abroad at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle, England. Fast-forward four years. While at RISD, I had an internship at a Warsaw based product design firm and got the chance to design city trams as well as brush up on my Polish. After graduate school I worked briefly for a product design firm, got married then set up my own one man shop and engaged in identity, print, web and product design projects for clients large and small across the country. In short, this diverse and rather unconventional experience has given me a unique and holistic perspective - something that suites me incredible well when thinking about and engaging in the design process. I have been recognized for my graphic, product and web design work and have had my work published in Graphis, Critique, The Boston Globe, Communication Arts, ID and Newsweek. All creative and design work presented here including the development of this site was executed solely by yours truly. Thanks for visiting!
The principles of great design are universal and can be found in any successful commercial endeavor. An intelligent design process and its result elevates the user experience of brands and products. From my years of multi-disciplinary design experience, I have crafted a meticulous process and have developed a keen sensibility that enables me to design successful products.
My digital product design work focuses on complex, technical tools and platforms. I've also created product brand identities, developed design systems as well as worked on both B2C and B2B apps.

I appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with stakeholders across the board; from other designers, to product managers, user researchers, developers and leadership. Nothing is more satisfying than having a collection of individuals with disparate skills and talents, come together, create and bring something of value into the world!
