I’m an analytical, collaborative leader who meets business goals with user-centered design.

From launching a paywall for New York Times Cooking to evangelizing responsive design for Harvard University, I use design and a no-ego environment to galvanize others to better understand the task at hand. I inspire my team to ship high-quality, creative solutions that are both focused and part of a holistic vision.

I’m currently a Product Design Director at The New York Times, evolving NYT Cooking’s website and apps. Previously, I designed custom, responsive websites at Happy Cog. I earned an MFA in Graphic Design from Maryland Institute College of Art and BA in Fine Arts (concentration in Communication Design) from the University of Pennsylvania.
