What I Do
I work to make things better by making better things.
My perspective on collaboration is that teams are relationships, and so require empathy and trust. It's built by doing what we say we're going to do over time and setting expectations, boundaries and commitments.
Empathy is all the rage now, but I've been doing it to shape what I make since before it was cool. Paired with being a visual learner and communicator, I have become skilled at translating needs into systems and designs.
Design is not new. Neither is trying to create an experience. What's new is that we are designing systems that involve a continuum of screens. Also, there aren't enough of us. I'm trying to help change that.
