a Product Design Manager with a side passion for visual design. Over the last 7 years, I've had the pleasure to work on award-winning projects with some of the most talented people and coolest brands.
I believe great product design comes from a focus on the right questions, not the right answers. It's about solving problems so that others don't have. It's about building something that lasts and works well, and use data to help people make better decisions than yesterday. It's about use technology to improve lives, but the software should be just one tool among many in the arsenal. I strive to create functional, delightful and valuable experiences that leave a positive impact on people, our communities and the environment.
