I am a Product Leader with a strong user-centered design focus working on web and mobile products
Currently, I am the Director of Product Design at 23andMe — leading our customer experience. I am an advocate for great UX and driven by purposeful design and smart engineering. I follow the latest advances in technology, interaction design, and social trends. I make time to experiment with as many web + mobile apps, publishing platforms and gadgets as I can.
Previously, I was a consultant for start-ups in mobile, entertainment, social and B2B. Notably, I was the Product Director that led a global team of designers, engineers, and media producers on development of a large-scale content social network. I have also been co-founder for both a bootstrapped mobile app startup and a venture-backed software company.
