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 designer at Hook & Loop Digital, a cross-functional team of designers, developers, and strategists who help large enterprises differentiate themselves from their competition.

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.
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 8,000 UX designers and researchers. I curate a bi-weekly UX newsletter with 6,000+ subscribers and manage two online publications Designer Hangout and Ask Me Anything :: Design.

Ask Me Anything :: Design
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.
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.
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 my side projects, I'm experimenting with machine learning, voice and conversational user interfaces.
