As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people's ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.

UX Architect / User Research & Strategy



I'm always open to learning about exciting UX opportunities so feel free to contact me.

My Story

I love designing engaging digital experiences for people. I thrive at a company that fosters a supportive, collaborative and creative culture that values everyone’s point of view when solving problems.

Even with 20+ years in the software industry, the last 5+ in User Experience, I’m always learning. I am endlessly fascinated by the UX process and how research and strategy (when done right) can make a project soar.

Why I went into UX...

To be a part of a collaborative, supportive and creative team.

To create and build things that help people be better at whatever it is they’re trying to do.

To be a thought leader and strategic planner.

To bring the two worlds of UX and Improvisation
