WHAT I DO
User driven functionality, experience design planning, team leadership and process design.
Defining and designing UX/VX architecture for applications, mobile and desktop products.
For a while (10 years) I led IF/THEN, a design studio I co-founded in Seattle. After serving as Creative Director for Deloitte Digital's Seattle office, I joined Microsoft as Design Director for Maps and People teams, and headed the Communications and People family of products as Creative Director. Following this, I led the Mixed Reality Studio Avatars Creative team, UX/VX/Art, expanding identity representation, driving connections between people, work and social experiences in Mixed Reality and traditional contexts.
Currently I lead the Seattle UX/UI team at Sonos as the Senior Design UX Manager.
The Bertschi School is a private Seattle institution, founded in 1972 by Brigitte Bertschi, a Swiss transplant to the Northwest. The school needed a modern website with a complete online class management system, a parent portal and an internal staff intranet.
The online class modules needed to be managed individually by the instructors and the parents have access to their respective child's class space. The class modules feature a calendar of events, a blog with the homework postings and a frequently updated slideshow of the class activities. The staff can communicate and keep in touch through the staff portal and update the daily blog and the calendar.
Client services coordination, planning, creative direction, experience + interactive design, testing and front-end development coordination.
