This is information about me.

I’m a UX & Product Designer, currently working in NY. I am currently a Senior Product Designer at dbt Labs, and have been since September 2022. I have designed complex and functional web products for B2C and B2B organizations. I've helped teams to better understand their users' needs, and created experiences that support user and business goals. I like working on products for complex workflows, to make them more accessible and approachable. I have also written and spoken about design, with a focus on data-informed design, and design ethics.

But here's a bit more information about how I work and what I've done.

My Design Process

The specific steps I take on any project always depend on the project goals, resources, and the team I’m working with. But on a higher level, I approach my work in a pragmatic and straight-forward way, with consideration for the context of how a product is used and made. I account for all nof the goals and contexts involved with a product, including the internal experience of creating it. From there, my work is to harmonize all of this to craft an experience that can be instintual, easy to learn, andbridge the gap between the complex power of digital tools, and the simplicity that human minds need to utilize it. I also can't help but enjoy a good workshop to hash out plans and aid decision-making.

I focus on defining the problem being addressed from multiple perspectives, understanding user needs and internal needs through quantitative and qualitative research, and establishing a framework for creating and evaluating design solutions in the short and long-term. If you want a designer that focuses only on the overall look and feel of a product, that can imagine experiences instead of plan them, then my process may not be what you're looking for. My process prioritizes lots of collaboration and synthesizing information, and contributing to strategy by aligning business goals with user goals.
