Product Designer with Carbon Five | Web App + Style Guide
Most recently, I've been improvising Product Management, finessing UI designs, and crafting UX flows with Travis Herrick and Greg Schwartz. Before that, I helped teach Impact Measurement to Under30Changemakers after learning a lot as a Product Designer at Carbon Five. I shared spaces with conscious founders while Design Consulting with Hylo, confidently delivered visuals for Engagement & Innovation Dashboard Designs at Brightidea, interviewed designers about UX Role(s), and shared responsibilities with enlightened men on Wikipedia Indicators of Gender Inequality. I'm challenging startup founders and innovative managers to grapple with tough issues and vulnerabilities. In the process, I'm facing my own.
