Product designer and special team player
Building great products is a team sport. It requires healthy collaboration, persistent communication, and diversity in people and ideas.
I’m currently a product designer at InVision, building tools to help designers and engineers collaborate better together. We’re improving the way teams at 80% of the world’s fortune 100 companies—like Lyft, Netflix, and Airbnb—stay in sync as their design decisions and products evolve.
IBMProduct Designer, UI Engineer2014–2017
IBM made a strong investment in design at the end of 2013 to rebuild the company’s products and services across the business. I joined during the first year of this transformation, and partnered with various organizations to define product strategy, research user needs, design enterprise software, and collaborate with engineers while continuously delivering outcomes for the business. My largest contribution was shipping an experience that allowed team leaders and financial analysts to manage access and payments for strategic, third-party tools.
Slack Enterprise for IBMProduct Designer2016
IBM was one of the first customers to roll out Slack’s enterprise product offering. We designed an experience called Discoverable Teams—allowing users that were split between hundreds of Slack Workspaces to find and communicate with each other—which became a catalyst for Slack’s eventual in-app solution.
I spent a summer in Cupertino, CA working with the talented team at Apple to design one of their first 100 business apps. We explored ways to extend the iOS ecosystem for people at work, and collaborated with engineers in Toronto, ON to help ship the product.
Make LabCo-Founder, Designer2014–2017
In an increasingly digital world, unplugging and working with the your hands is more important than ever. I co-founded the Make Lab with Patrick Chew in 2014 to create a space where IBMers could explore, recharge, and bring that creative energy back to their work. We built a dedicated space for physical making, taught printmaking classes, managed monthly budgets, and built the Lab’s web archives.
