User Experience Design & Product Development
A hands-on leader: I define and deliver user experiences across the web, interactive television and especially mobile applications. I have experience establishing design and product management processes and building teams from scratch. I love crafting data-driven products that delight customers, and provide measurable results.
I am Head of Product Management & User Experience for MikMak, the first ever mobile video shopping network. As part of an early-stage start-up (a seed-funded team of six) I am responsible for the product roadmap and metrics, defining our user experience, and the day-to-day delivery detailed wireframes, interface mock-ups and assets.
Previously, I was Global Director of User Experience for Fab where I oversaw the design all consumer-facing and enterprise products including Fab.com, iOS & Anroid apps, email & notifications, and our bespoke ecommerce platform. I launched the digital properties for Hem.com, Fab's private-label furtniture spin off based in Europe. I led of team of ten UX and UI designers in New York, Berlin and Pune, India; I also served as deputy to the SVP of Product.
As product design lead at WaPoLabs—digital products incubator for The Washington Post Company—my work focused on building and directing a team of interaction designers, and steering user experience consumer products and B2B technology platforms for WPO’s family of media businesses including Trove, The Washington Post, Slate, The Root, Post-Newsweek Stations, among others.
I thrive on collaboration and am expert in product and experience prototyping, human-centered research, design direction, and working within engineering teams. Equally adept presenting to key stakeholders, advocating for users, producing wireframes or pixel-perfect visual designs. I earned a BFA in Communication Design from Carnegie Mellon University, an MFA in Design and MA in Visual & Critical Studies at California College of the Arts.
