I understand the importance of balancing business goals with user’s needs and how that balance can make or break a project. The key to success is effective communication and strong leadership. Having been involved in every stage of the creative process over the course of my 18-year career I’ve identified my strength is making sense of often ambiguous situations, and easily transitioning between managing project deliverables and engaging with clients.
I work with my team to set expectations and then uphold where the bar is set. I make sure they have the space to do their best work while I provide direction and push pixels if necessary. We work hard together and have fun along the way.
With the practice of design increasingly becoming a focal point for many business challenges it’s evident that our approach to solving problems has far reaching value to a vast range of industries. With the increased use of phrases like “multi-disciplinary” and “omni-channel” it’s also evident that designers are experiencing an interesting hybrid stage of an ever shifting discipline.
I’m intrigued with the evolution of design and technology and how it’s continually embedded into our daily lives. I’m inspired by the idea that design is increasingly about interaction with each other through technology rather than the interaction with the technology itself. This fuels my drive to continue trying to understand the power and responsibilities we have as designers in this digital age.
All ideas are worth sharing, all perspectives worth considering, and all solutions are worth trying.
I have an uncanny ability to fit more objects into a single space than what many people would think is humanly possible, which means I’m really good at packing for any occasion.
I love going on road trips to nowhere/anywhere and spontaneous adventures. I've got no problem hopping on a plane to who knows where as a balance for the routine and detail oriented posture of my everyday.
I'm very aware that change is the only constant in life and nature always provides answers.
