Biography

I'm currently Director of Design at Clever, powering technology in classrooms across the country.

Previously I worked at Ten-X, where I first grew and led a Product Design group supporting Auction.com and Ten-X CRE, and then led product for Ten-X Homes. In the past, I’ve designed for large companies like eBay and Yahoo, for mid-sized companies, and for tiny startups. I've worked as a solo practitioner, led teams of designers, and run my own consultancy helping businesses with design and product strategy. I have designed for the web, for mobile devices, and for desktop applications.

In all these roles, I most enjoy work that solves real problems for real people.
