I am currently the lead product designer at LearnUp, a pre-job training platform that aims to reduce the skills gap for entry-level jobseekers. My team and I build intuitive user experiences for both large corporations like Walmart and Old Navy and entry-level jobseekers. I believe in the power of design to create great experiences that empower people to succeed.
Previously, I worked as a senior product designer at Yammer (acquired by Microsoft) and Zenefits. Prior to joining the bay area tech scene, I taught undergraduate design courses at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and the California College of Art (CCA). I hold a BFA in studio arts from the University of Texas at Austin and an MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
I'm excited to give a talk, Being the first designer: How to pave the way for an awesome design team, this March at the upcoming O'Reilly Design conference in San Francisco.
