I am a multidisciplinary, collaborative visual and user experience designer in Pittsburgh, PA.
I work on a team at Nielsen that develops web-based SaaS market research software. I work with a user-focused team of front-end designers and customer success advocates to research, sketch, prototype, and usability-test all customer-facing features and system components. I coordinate with sales and product-owners to conduct high-level, human-centered design activities to discover user needs. I manage our design backlog and iterate with developers to construct scalable and flexible products in an aggressively agile environment.
I also occasionally do some work on the side; email me if you’d like to work on a project together.
Currently (March 2018)
