About me & my work:

I’m a recognized design leader and entrepreneur with deep expertise in user experience design, product strategy, product management, design management, brand architecture, marketing, and design thinking. I've held executive roles at Disney, Scripps Networks, Yahoo and Corbis. My experience spans devices, mediums and environments, in domains including storytelling and entertainment, healthcare, banking, personal finance, parenting, fashion and lifestyle, food, shopping, gaming, and social media. I got my start in design on 7th Ave in the fashion industry, before turning my focus toward media and technology. My interdisciplinary approach is fundamental to my ability to innovate across markets and audiences. I build high performing teams, establish design practices, mentor and grow the next generation of product design talent, inspire cultures of collaboration, and deliver best in class products and services. I drive strategic discussions at the highest levels of companies, focusing on user needs to inspire innovation, delight users and transform businesses. Perhaps the most meaningful aspect of my work (to me) is not the work itself or experience i've garnered, but how I’ve served the audiences I design for, and the relationships I've developed over the years with those I have partnered with.
