Research + Design + Strategy

I'm a designer who helps companies build amazing products. I focus on design strategy, high-level user experience, beautifully-detailed user interface design, and interaction and motion prototyping.

Right now, I'm at Disco, helping lawyers win more cases. I lead design on our core system team, focusing on reuse and delivering value to both users and feature teams through research, design language and specification, pattern, and componentry.

Before Disco, I was at Netspend for 4 years, where I designed distributed digital consumer and business banking products and experiences, and the platforms and patterns that powered them. I joined Netspend as one of the first product/experience designers. A couple years into my time there, the company was bought for $1.4B and I stayed on for a couple more years.

Before Netspend, I worked mostly with other startups, solving challenging problems in interesting spaces.

In short, I try to immerse myself in the problem space to design what people need.

To do that, I talk to users and with leadership to make sure we're building the right things. I build products for the people that will use them. I listen to those people. I champion for those people. In the end, I design products that are incredibly intuitive, thoughful, and beautiful.

These are just a few of the things I've been working on recently, but I've got a ton more work, so if you're looking for something specific, just ask — there's a good chance I've encountered and solved for it or something similar along the way. Either way, I love talking about interesting projects and ideas!
