tl;dr – Committed to doing work that fosters social good and excited by projects that have a positive impact, build-community, and empower people to help themselves and others.

I am more than just a well trained designer. I also have a business degree in Marketing which allows me to see the big picture beyond just the pixels on screen and a Masters in Design & Technology so I am not afraid to jump into Xcode and help debug if necessary. As a product designer, I have worked hands on with engineers in an agile development environment to deliver products for web, and both native app platforms. I live for a fast paced and iterative environment and perform best when working across the product development spectrum.

A few years ago, I founded my own tech-startup named Speshio – a mobile app for group support. Throughout this process I learned so much about the start-up world and about myself. I built a team that consisted of 2 in house engineers, 3 contract engineers, 4 engineering advisors and an on call creative team to help collaborate and work up product design magic. Managing these engineers, creatives, administrative tasks, and leading the product vision was such a fun adventure. It encouraged me to learn how to motivate others to achieve their best work, keep all teammates focused on a single mission, and also taught me one of my (now) favorite mottos:

You don't know what you don't know, until you don't know it.

Then you learn it.
*Repeat*

My startup experience with Speshio further solidified my passion for product design and working with others to develop products that make a positive impact on society. I am enthusiastic about new opportunities to be surrounded by creative and intelligent minds that I can learn from and continue to grow as a Designer. I am currently a Product Designer at Fitbit.
