I currently work at Google on the Nest team, focusing on the development and design of services that work with our home hardware. During my first two years at Google I was the leaf designer on the Nest Aware service, which works with Nest cameras and speakers to unlock awareness features and give customers peice of mind.

I spent much of my time at R/GA creating digital experiences that personalize a client’s offering to the customer’s needs, whether it be clothing, music, or what to cook for dinner.  In my final year, I shifted to game design, working with fitness trainers to create competitive digital exercise classes. Working under a creative director, I oversaw a team of two experience designers and worked directly with visual designers and developers. Clients I worked with include Verizon, McCormick Spice, Victoria’s Secret, Beats Music, Tiffany’s, L’Oréal Paris, and Equinox.

2009 - 2010
Web technician

In 2008, the Yale School of Medicine decided to bring the separate web pages of each academic department together and create a single platform. As a web technician, I sifted through content to help designers understand what was important to our two main user types: hospital patients and prospective medical school students. After the team had designed a series of templates, I placed new content into pages, reviewed feedback from users, and checked live pages for bugs. The experience sparked my interest in building digital platforms that start with the needs of the user.
