is a Product Designer working at Shop. Based in Seattle. ☼
I'm a design specialist, that specializes in being a generalist.
I’ve been designing for screens for over 15 years. Though my roots are in traditional graphic design, I have worked as a Front-end Developer, Product Designer, Design Manager, and as a teacher of Web Design and UX at Seattle Central College. From co-owning my own design studio to working at one of the world’s largest most-customer-facing companies, I have a proven track record of creating elegant design solutions that solve customer problems and meet business goals.
I value simplicity and clarity in my work, and deliver delight to users to make digital experiences feel more human. ☼

- Amateur Hour
- Co-Founder / Amateur DJ
In 2013, fellow designer Alaa Mendili and I decided to embark on a social experiment: become DJ’s and see how far we could take it. We called ourselves Amateur Hour to speak to our approach: not taking ourselves too seriously and valuing the process of learning something new. What we lacked in DJ skills, we made up for with a fun visual identity, dance videos, colorful matching outfits, and hosting memorable events.
We took on each event as an opportunity to elevate the experience and add to the story of this social experiment, from playing atop a floating sauna in the middle of Seattle’s Lake Union, to playing in a roofless dive bar in Mexico during a thunderstorm, to booking the final act of Facebook’s company holiday party, all while having our day jobs at other big tech companies.
