About Me

I am a seasoned UX professional with 15+ years of experience, grateful to have worked at some of the best tech companies.

I am future directed. Are you designing for the future or just stuck creating features? I can help.

How I Think About Design

As a designer, my north star that has served me well has always been:  do the right thing for the customer. 

This means that I enjoy participating in learning about users and their problems, designing the right things, and value high quality work.

I also believe design is a team sport.  I occasionally write about the soft skills that are fundamental to doing good design work.

Collaboration and community, not competition and comparison.

I am the creator of the Long Beach UX Meetup from 2017 to 2019. We met once a month to support and learn from each other through "Coffee & Design Therapy". I also invited other design leaders to come and do small workshops for the community.

The user is the expert and we're serving them.

I have self-published a book to help designers chart out their careers and get back to focusing on service.

Read My Book

The real master is always a student.

I believe there is always more to learn. I have taught UX classes and graduated over 100+ UX students at General Assembly - and have found I am still learning more.

The soft skills are just as important as the hard skills.

I have a passion for the soft skills in design and conducted over 14 workshops at various places like UCLA, Cal Arts, Lucky Brand, and more.
