About

I have over 15 years of experience using design and design thinking to solve big problems in novel ways. Over my career I've worn many hats and been fortunate enough to be a part of some amazing projects all over the world.

Some highlights!
I was a part of the team that revolutionized cities through their invention of the Park(let).

At the Exploratorium, I led the development of projects that created a massive mission impact while generating revenue. I helped launch two new programs focused on international projects and public spaces.

As Cofounder of Public Recreation (YC S18) I built a company that activated public spaces while providing radically affordable access to high quality fitness.

Most recently, I founded User Hero, which helps companies organize, search and synthesize their user research so that they're focused on solving the right problems.

I love to learn - about people, their problems, new skills, or random trivia. This love of learning is what led me to become an experience designer. The ability to collaborate with others and create elegant solutions makes me happy.
