WHAT I DO
User driven functionality planning and design, leading teams and establishing processes.
Defining and designing user experience 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.
Site and video artist interviews for the Henry Art initiative centered around Northwest Artists. The artists featured are Jeffry Mitchell, Claire Cowie, Roy McMakin and Gary Hill. Produced, shot and edited for the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, the interviews focus on the artists mid-career survey shows.
Part of the challenge – shooting over an hour of really great footage each time and then condense it down to a tight 6 minute story highlighting relevant aspects of the artist's career. Also, not touching (or breaking) all the beautiful artwork in the studios when shooting.
