I am a Product and Experience Design Leader steeped in UX with over 20 years of experience working on user research and delivery of digital products at scale from startups to large corporations. My work focuses on bringing an Agile-based design process to businesses by employing research, interaction design and prototyping in collaboration with business and engineering processes to demonstrate the impact design thinking has on human-centered product development when matched with technical feasibility and business strategy.
As a local design leader, I manage and scale teams throughout Los Angeles and cofounded NELAUX, a local meetup organization with 2,000 members fostering the Northeast LA UX community. I regularly teach and speak on design thinking at local events and conferences across the country.
