Product Design Leader

Ask anyone who I am, and you'll likely hear several answers: product designer, leader, observer, coach, Star Trek superfan. I have over 20 years of experience ranging from startup to enterprise, giving me the confidence to quickly assess a situation and respond appropriately. My focus is equally split across two domains, designing customer delighting software, and building highly functional teams. A technologist at heart, I love to learn new technologies and often found playing with the latest gadgets.

➜ Influencing and addressing the expectations of key business stakeholders
➜ Coaching and developing current and emerging design managers
➜ Leading, mentoring and guiding designers
➜ Collaborating with the product organization, marketing, and engineering to define objectives and key results to execute strategy
➜ Establishing line-of-sight and strategic imperatives for design teams
➜ Recruiting, nurturing and retaining top-tier talent
➜ Working collaboratively with product partners to identify priorities, plan projects and design approaches to enable the best experience outcome
➜ Demonstrating thought leadership by contributing subject matter expertise in the areas of content design, storytelling, interaction design, and user research
➜ Managing and prioritizing a workload of multiple projects from concept to completion
➜ Evangelizing best UX practices to other designers, engineers, and product managers
➜ Working with Data Scientists to deliver machine learning models that satisfy validated user problems.
