I work on making people's lives better through design.
My story is conventionally unconventional. I spent about 7 years living in the theatre world designing lights and managing theater + dance productions.
Post college, I crossed over to the tech world, where I now shape how people interact with each other and technology doing user experience design. Basically that means I help shape how easy/good/nice a website is to use. The theatre and tech worlds aren't all that different, and neither is designing for them. Both are about understanding stories, and helping communicate that in a way that balances art and technology.
Currently I work at Google on mostly internal products for Search and YouTube, however I design consumer products for Google's Data Liberation Front; Google Takeout is the one you may have heard of.
While I'm interested in how people interact with technology, what I really care about is how they interact with one another. It's a lot harder to help people interact with each other than it is to help people interact with computers. I fundamentally believe that we should be designing technology that brings us closer together, not pulls us farther apart. Learn more about my projects and interests on the tech page. It also has a resume.
