How I work

I partner with your product experts on strategy

Your customers are at the heart of your business. Design can tie together the domain knowledge and expertise at any level: founders, product managers, sales, and customer support.

I work best with a product management or business partner to explore sources of insights, devise strategies, and capture them in stories, visualizations, and designs.

I partner with your developers on implementation

Your stack is unique and your developers know it best. Developer and designer expertise, when working together, can make your experience accessible, responsive, and secure.

I create robust and feasible designs, and making them real takes problem-solving in conjunction with a development partner. I enjoy pairing up with developers on creative solutions, scalability, and visual fine-tuning.

I become part of the design team of any size

I understand the urgency of needing to move projects forward. I start from wherever you are now and integrate with your team and your processes as seamlessly as possible.

I am driven towards what will make future design work successful. Alongside designing features, I will create or enhance your design system through style guides and assets for a solid foundation.
