How I do stuff
I have over 10 years of experience as a UX designer, and specialize in responsive and mobile SaaS application interfaces. My most recent experience has been UX/UI Lead for Avalara, a tax compliance SaaS company that’s just about to go public, where I led a 6-person design team in Seattle and India. I provided creative direction and visual design for marketing websites and information architecture for a new custom content management system to handle 200,000+ pages, 10 sites, 4 languages, and 45 countries. Before that, I was the principal user experience and product designer for LearnLive Technologies, a 13-person learning management startup that was successfully acquired by Thomson Reuters.
I have a passion for hard problems, and I look for solutions in unlikely places. My background as an artist, as a writer, as a garden designer and luthier, have all informed my work. Clarity is my watch-word. I practice art, science, and craft, all at once. I wear a lot of hats.
