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 am currently a UX designer at Lifion, a special ADP venture where I work with a skilled team of designers dedicated to improving the HR experience for employees, managers, executives and HR practitioners.

I have 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, Optimal Workshop, O'Reilly Media, InVision and ADP.

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 7,500 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 and stay ahead of the trends.

I curate a bi-weekly UX newsletter with 6,000+ subscribers and manage two online publications Designer Hangout and Ask Me Anything :: Design. When I'm not working on my side projects, I'm experimenting with machine learning and conversational user interfaces.
