I'm currently at Amazon working in the hardlines consumer electronics division, focusing on retail customer experience design for Amazon Wireless. Previous to my current role, I was in the consumer marketing organization and worked on a handful of projects: the Amazon Windows 8 shopping app, Amazon Assistant, email marketing, Amazon Smile, internal brand, Amazon Associates, and more. I also spent time in Corporate Projects, working on an innovative never-before-seen secret project that will soon launch!
At Sphero, I focused on design interusability and distributed user experiences across multiple devices. I worked on the experiences of Sphero’s family of products -- the Star Wars BB-8 app-enabled droid, Star Wars Force Band, Sphero 2.0, Ollie/Darkside, SPRK, and other new emerging projects. I led the user research program across all connected play experiences, generally on a near-$0 budget. My varied responsibilities included human factors design, interactive design, concept testing, and usability optimization.
I've also run my own design studio, consulted with a handful of LA-based startups, and even spent years pursuing my own startup. When I'm not designing, I enjoy running, reading, traveling, photography, and playing video games.
I currently teach Interactive Design at University of Colorado-Denver and UX Design at General Assembly-Denver.
