I love what I do!

This passion drives me to enhance experiences, nurture talent, and build bridges through collaboration. When it comes to creating great experiences, strategy, design, plus team culture is key.

If you wish to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

At Comcast, I lead the efforts of building and mentoring a cross-functional team of voice interface designers, writers, researchers, and prototypers responsible for the end-to-end voice and dialogue experiences within Xfinity’s multimodal products.

Prior to Comcast, I worked at 1 Trick Pony for ten years where I helped the company grow from three employees to over forty. I oversaw UX and design strategies as director of the agency’s interactive team. My work there was recognized by the One Club, Webby Awards, SXSW, and featured in FWA, Communication Arts, How Magazine, and Print.

I enjoy exercising, reading, meeting new people, all things tech, and tequila. To connect, find me on LinkedIn or drop me an email to say hello.
