I'm a Senior Product Designer who's been working in tech since the early 2000s in various roles of design and leadership. I've worked on market-leading SaaS applications in established organizations, serviced clients in agency and consulting environments, and acted as the sole designer in a popular mobile startup. I am currently a Lead Product Designer at Forge Studio. Prior to that, I was a UX Manager at Shopify.
I am comfortable working with multi-disciplinary, remote teams and leading design initiatives, redesigns, and new projects. I am happiest and most productive in cultures that value research, strategy, ideation, and planning.
I live in Vancouver, BC, where some people think it rains too much. Compared to the rest of Canada, I find the climate mild and lush. Plus, we have mountains, which I love. When the snow is good, I try and get out to snowboard or snowshoe.
I love Vinyasa and Restorative/Yin yoga. I obtained my Yoga teacher's certification in 2013, but took a break from practicing due to an injury. Currently, I am rediscovering the joy I get from movement and breath.
In the near future I'd like to have a home nestled in the mountains with two dogs, a garden, and some chickens.
