I love all things design and enjoy tackling challenging design problems.

As a multidisciplinary creative with 39 patents granted worldwide, I offer a versatile skill set that balances creative and analytical thinking to achieve user-centric designs.

My process synthesizes the needs and goals of users, product managers, user researchers, developers, testers, marketers, and sales people.  My goal is to balance all inputs to ensure that the designed experience is the desired result.
