About Me

I’m a product designer at Google on the Youtube team. I’m passionate about creating tools that help people connect and better understand the world around them, and my projects range from mobile apps to intelligent hardware. Of the recent projects launched, the Play:5 has won the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award.

I’ve always been a big advocate of the philosophy of rapid prototyping. At Sonos, I was an advisor to the hack week group and traveled to international campuses to teach teams how to better iterate through concepts so that they’re more likely to succeed. I’ve also been invited to speak about our process at RSK Sessions. Over the course of my career I’ve worked on apps, haptic interfaces, information architecture, setup flows, physical UIs, audio interfaces, digital stores, and a satellite interface.

I completed my bachelor's degree at Duke University in cognitive psychology, a graduate degree in human computer interaction at the University of Queensland, and the master’s program at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID).

Other interests of mine include financial literacy, public policy, telepresence, and tools that augment human intelligence.
