Experience Director

What drove me back in the early ‘90s to write my first HTML for Lynx is still the same thing that gets me going today: a passion and curiosity for making peoples lives a little richer, a desire to excel and continuously improve, and a belief that you must enjoy what you do.

Leading from the front also means bringing everyone along.

My best work is a product of collaboration, where I encourage everyone to bring a different perspective and I get to learn from my peers. I’m honest, approachable, and strive to inspire my team to perform their best while having fun. I'm just as comfortable leading brainstorms with the team as standing in front of executives to present complex concepts, clearly and persuasively.

I like the big problems — problems that others look at and say 'no thanks’.

Solving big challenges gives us the opportunity to affect people in profound and meaningful ways and it gives me an opportunity to work outside of my comfort zone, to push myself to get better. I enjoy breaking down complex problems, looking at them from a different angle. Some would say I’m surprisingly calm in any situation; I just find myself comfortable with ambiguity and know that it’s just another problem to solve.

I'm passionate about making people's lives simpler, better and richer.

I look at my own experiences and everyday problems, and know that there has to be a better way of doing things. Examples are all around us, from the humbling and impactful to the less obvious and small. I have a great curiosity for how things work and how they make people think, act, and feel. Whether it positively affects one person or a billion people, I’d call that success.

Big ideas are fun, but it’s getting through the last mile that makes them real.

Seemingly simple solutions come from hard work and an unwavering commitment to quality. It takes a lot to turn a flash of an idea into a subtle and thoughtful reality — by tinkering, perfecting and improving. I try to bring a high level of thought and skill to everything I do and will work hard until we create technology that is smart, as well as beautiful.

When I'm not working

I enjoy the company of friends, exploring new flavors in the kitchen, and losing myself in the story of a movie. With a flair for adventure and a cross-cultural upbringing, it is no surprise that you may find me jumping out of an airplane or crossing the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

Leading Work

I have given it my all — my vision and leadership, as well as concepts and execution. The product of my work only tells part of the story, but I hope it communicates my passion for creating smart and beautiful technology.

Been There, Going Places

For over fifteen years, I’ve been working in the world of technology and experience design. I’m having a great time with life’s back and forth, u-turns, ups and downs, and adapting to new experiences and challenges.
