Thinking through making.
I’m a designer with 15 years of experience in digital and physical product development. I’m a creative leader of multi-disciplinary teams, embedding design as a competitive advantage to create experiences that result in desireable, user-centric products. As a team lead, I create inclusive work environments that foster innovation to solve meaningful problems. As a design lead, I’m experimental and lead through making. I use modern design methods and storytelling techiques to innovate in a human-centered way.
My work focuses on the intersection of design strategy, advanced technology, and business. My focus today is designing consumer products at Google. I lead new technology investigations for the Android platform and Pixel phone.
With a background in Industrial Design and Architecture, I have worked on a wide variety of projects from consumer products to museum exhibits, spatial planning, and now cross-device digital services. Before Google, I worked at Microsoft on Robotics, AR, and Maps. I started my career freelancing and consulting on projects for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
