I'm a technical design lead and manager with experience designing and developing for web, React, macOS, and iOS.
I care about designing conscientious experiences that are delightfully accessible to everyone. My generative approach starts by identifying the problem that needs to be solved, and then analyzes optimizations and trade-offs of potential solutions before making an opinionated decision on the right solution.
Problems are solved in both the interface and in the technical infrastructure, which is why I work closely with the engineers on my team to achieve the best possible outcome.
I value transparency and emphasize taking balanced mental and physical care at work. Involving all functions in the design process is especially important, as the best solutions are discovered by cross-functional teams. I believe that experiences should be self-aware; design doesn't exist in a vacuum, it exists alongside all of the emotions, environments, and scenarios that exist in a person's life.
During my time at Dropbox, I wrote this checklist to remind myself of my good and bad habits:
In my spare time I'm exploring tropical places, decorating my home, or eating pancakes.
