I have worked with advertising agencies, clients, companies, consultancies, individuals, marketing firms, non-profits, and start ups. As a former developer, I strive to bridge everyone’s needs with the simplicity offered through a consistent design language, encourage and promote collaboration, and inspire everyone to be mindful of the user in our collective work.
Most recently I was Manager, User Experience Development for FlightSafety International where I managed two designers and worked concurrently as an individual contributor. My responsibilities also included coordinating with over fifteen developers, multiple product owners, marketers, executives, whilst always keeping our users at the forefront. I helped shepherd the team to focus upon the user, foster a refined design ethos, and build consistent design practices.
I received a Master’s Degree concentrating on User Experience & Interaction Design from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Economics from Gettysburg College.
I am passionate about technology and how it can positively impact our lives, making pizza, woodworking, cooking, swimming, playing music, driving, and spending time with my Golden Retrievers Louie and Oliver, and my parents in the Pennsylvania countryside. I can be found making pies Saturdays at Paulie Gee’s Slice Shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn or hosting pizza parties home with my Ooni Karu oven and offer advice for making great pizza at home.
