Marketing and Design Director
A background in Product Design and a tendancy toward digital design tools has helped me contribute to the digital design landscape at automotive (8 years) and consumer product (4 years) companies, in the US and overseas. In addition, I have also done UX design for large international clients in the tech, services, and consumer products industries.
