my values

UX as a vessel for positive change

Equity & accessibility

Technology has the power to combat societal inequities and give people capabilities that might not have been a reality for them previously. The design of these technologies can make or break how effective they actually are in accomplishing positive change, and I have always kept this in mind as a designer.

Research-driven decisions

We design for humans, and humans change over time — so assuming we have all the expertise we need without continual research is a big mistake in my book. I love using research to strengthen or debunk assumptions, and it provides a much more concrete way to instantiate design decisions with stakeholders.

Happy users = sustainable businesses

I am a passionate believer in product-led and user-focused business strategies. Strong products that delight users make marketing and selling them much more efficient and genuine. Scalable, sustainable businesses are built from consistent, quality products.
