WHAT I DO

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.
Ketchikan Visitor Bureau
The Ketchikan Visitor’s Bureau was exploring options for presenting the rich content through a website that could educate visitors and inspire people to explore the vast history, arts, and culture of the town. The project was extended into an iPad app intended to serve cruise lines and the Ketchikan Visitors bureau in-town kiosks.
The site and application demonstrate a comprehensive presentation of the town and the community. The site and application contain informative slides, pictures, interactive elements, and video modules of arts and attractions, all presented with the aid of an interactive map.
Client services coordination, planning, creative direction, experience + interactive design, testing and front-end development coordination.
