UX Designer & Founder based in NYC

Addicted to community building, essentialism, lean methodology, divergent thinking, staying ahead of the trends, side projects, and the oxford comma.

UX Designer

My drive to understand people and improve their lives fuels my passion as a UX designer and researcher. I enjoy difficult problems, the collaborative design process and working on teams that do great work. I'm currently a designer at H&L Digital, a cross-functional team of designers, developers, and strategists who help large enterprises differentiate themselves from their competition.

I've had the pleasure to work with a large range of clients including New Relic, Adobe, The New York Philharmonic, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Chipotle, Fidelity Payments, InVision, ADP, The Brooklyn Nets, HNI Furniture, and Georgia-Pacific.

Community Builder

I am someone who understands how to lead, inspire, and listen to build cohesive and collaborative communities with a shared mission. I am the founder of Designer Hangout, a global, invite-only UX community of over 10,000 UX designers and researchers.


I am someone who meticulously cuts away everything that doesn't get me closer to achieving my goals by simplifying, testing, and asking 'Why' to get to the core of problems. I am a proponent of lean methodology and apply it vigorously to validate ideas and design software on agile teams.

Full of Ideas

I am someone who is full of ideas, insatiably curious, open minded, and leverages the power of great ideas and great stories to bring meaningful change.

Side Project Junkie & Ahead of the Trends

I am someone who likes to learn new things and experiment hands on so I can learn through doing in an effort to deeply understand new design possibilities with the advent of new technology. When I'm not working on side projects, I'm experimenting with machine learning, voice UI, AR, and conversational user interfaces.
