ABOUT ME

I'm a UX/UI Designer who loves bringing diverse points of view to my work and communicating complex ideas through a combination of written, technical, and visual material. I enjoy the challenge of creating new and original interaction methods and pushing the envelope of design in immersive and traditional spaces.

I currently work at Lenovo where I support our ThinkReality software and hardware solutions - designing natural user interfaces, exploring embodied and peripheral interaction techniques, and performing Human Factors validation studies among other activities. I'm the UX/UI design lead for a connected device management platform and dynamic telemetry dashboard. I also support a myriad of hardware accessories which often includes firmware design, print materials, and modular attachments among other things.

Over the past few years, I lead several research studies surrounding evolving work spaces, day-in-the-life product usage, and the future of personal computing.
