Since 2012 I've been working as a Product Designer, mostly for early-stage startups, but I’ve also helped design products for enterprise and publicly traded companies.
I work well on cross-discipline teams, with business leaders, engineers and marketing. I love having ownership over a project and taking it from concept to launch. Working on small teams have pushed me to be a strong leader, a clear communicator and an evangelist for having efficient processes.
Before beginning my journey as a Product Designer, I spent time as a Designer and Creative Director in local agencies. There I learned an approach to quick, critical thinking and presentation; something that has traveled well into my experience on product teams.
For the past 6 years I was Director of Product Design at Accountingfly, a job board and applicant tracking system for the accounting industry. Along with the CEO I held the vision for the product and led the teams to execute that vision. I coordinated all product and design related projects, from prototyping and creating features based on customer feedback and business needs, to working alongside the marketing team planning launches and campaigns.
Before Accountingfly I helped found Hippy Social; a location-based mobile chat application. I worked with the original founder to hone in his vision into a focused practical product and worked with an international engineering team to build both an iOS and Android application.
Currently I reside in Florida in search of my next opportunity.
