Speaking at the World Accessibility Conference, 2017.

I am a multi-disciplinary designer, strategist, technologist, and people-manager that works with businesses and brands to develop thoughtful solutions. I've produced first-hand and directed teams to create compelling experiences that balance the needs of organizations and the people they serve, with an eye towards the future of technology and digital innovation. I've built design teams from the ground up with an empathetic approach towards managing and helping others grow.

I am currently an Innovation Design Principal within the Client Innovation team at Pegasystems. Previously, I started and operated as the Founder and Creative Director at Interactive Mechanics, Design Director at O3 World, and Lead UX/UI Designer at Azavea. I’m also an active design thinking workshop facilitator and public speaker on a variety of topics, including design, strategy, accessibility, management, and culture.
