WELCOME

THANK YOU FOR VISITING

I am a creative director and a user experience (UX) leader based in Denver, Colorado. I spend my time crafting digital experiences starting from concept and marketing strategy through execution. For over 20 years, I have been leading cross-functional teams, delivering innovative websites and highly functional, user-friendly interfaces, and evangelizing on behalf of the user. Currently, I work at Nutrislice, and I'm responsible for improving UX quality, cohesiveness, and consistency of their digital platform for menus, ordering, and signage. My mission is to help the team avoid further complicating the product and triage "feature bloat."

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