I’ve been working in digital design for over 15 years, specializing in interfaces and user experience. These days, I’m Director of Product Design at TurnTo. Prior to that, I helped make complex software more friendly at Datto/Autotask. In a past life, I worked on casual games and virtual world experiences, which was a wild ride and valuable crash course in human behavior.
Before “UX” had any real recognition, we were just designers who cared about people.
I’ve always been driven by a passion for connecting people with technology that can improve their lives, and I personally measure success by the value a product brings to a person.
As of late, I’m thoroughly enjoying growing our research practice, tuning processes, and fostering cross-discipline collaboration, in order to enable our design team at TurnTo to be more efficient, effective, and deliver increased ROI.
In my spare time, I’m an electronic musician and co-founder of The Coterminous Collectiv (a collective of Hudson Valley area electronic musicians and multimedia artists), a dancer, cat mom, terrarium-maker, and serial DIY-er. I believe that art is a universal language and a uniter of people and that we should all share more of it.
I love living in/exploring the beautiful Catskill mountains of Upstate NY, and finding the best cup of coffee wherever life takes me.
