Learning through

Making

As an experience design director, I have led a variety of innovation and design sprints for companies, both large and small.  I believe in the value and importance of shaping products through not only informed intuition but also rapid prototyping.

My passion is learning through making and design doing.  I take particular pleasure in creating prototypes using tools such as a Principle, Axure, InVision or even coded prototypes.

Interfaces

When I founded Maven Interactive, I always strove to marry design and technology in new and interesting ways. As a creative technologist, my UI work is distinguished by my love of clean interfaces and unique interaction models. I enjoy pushing the envelope and telling brand stories through both interaction and motion.
