About

NYC Design Leader building product experiences and strategic brand growth
__

As a Design Lead with 10+ years of expertise across eCommerce, fintech, hospitality, and healthcare, I build new futures for digital products and consumer ventures.

Today I'm leading product design at n2y and serving the education technology needs of special needs classrooms. I also advise other organizations with design recruiting and UX growth strategies.

Lately, I've been exploring the frontiers of AI productivity and tooling. I'm eager to shape the future of technology and culture.
