Thinking through making.

I’m a creative leader of multi-disciplinary teams, embedding design as a competitive advantage to create experiences that result in desirable, 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 techniques to innovate in a human-centered way.

I specialize in product design for consumer Artificial Intelligence products, operating systems, multiscreen platforms, and physical environments. My work focuses on the intersection of design strategy, advanced technology, and business. My focus today is designing consumer products at Google.  I’m a design strategy lead on Workspace, defining the future of productivity. Previously I led new technology investigations for the Android platform and Pixel phone. I hold 50+ patents from my work in design and technology.

With a background in Industrial Design and Architecture, I’ve 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 organizations like Stanley, MySpace, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
