I’ve grown up in the world of human-centred design, starting out as an undergrad visual designer who got lucky with an eye-opening internship. At Doblin I cut my teeth and became an advocate for design as a mindset, as well as a skill set.

I’m curious about what makes people tick and passionate about designing services and experiences informed by the needs of users—you know, humans like you and me. I enjoy fast-paced environments and learning by doing. Empathy and diverse perspectives are at the heart of great service design, so I have a soft spot for mentoring and helping to build multidisciplinary teams.

What can I do? Like, specifically?

VISUAL DESIGN

Layouts, branding, UI, illustrations

USER RESEARCH

Planning, exploratory, observational, usability testing

WORKSHOP DESIGN

Activities, materials, production, facilitation

INFORMATION DESIGN

Frameworks, infographics, blueprints, data visualization

CONTEXTUAL RESEARCH

Who am I outside of work?

 

I spend most of my time rock climbing, hiking, skiing, taking photos—and any combination of the above. I’ll never say no to an outdoor adventure. Recently, I took a career break to explore and climb across the western U.S., living in a converted Ford Transit. 

I love discussing films, TV, video games, board games, and all forms of narrative media. I also like cooking and eating new foods. I’m easily persuaded by novelty and often find myself in new places or trying new things with varying degrees of success, much to the amusement of those around me.
