WELCOME

THANK YOU FOR VISITING

I am a user experience (UX) leader specializing in design systems based in Denver, Colorado. I spend my time building and managing design systems that help UX designers, developers, and product managers to craft consistent digital experiences, while saving companies millions of dollars by reducing duplicate design and development effort. For over 20 years, I have been leading cross-functional teams, delivering innovative products and highly functional, user-friendly interfaces, and evangelizing on behalf of the user. Currently, I work at Trimble managing Modus Design System, and I’m responsible for improving UX quality, cohesiveness, and efficiency of over 600 products worldwide.

When I’m not advocating for usability or building design systems, you can find me in the mountains: rock climbing and hiking in the summer and skiing and mountaineering in the winter.
