User Experience Professional based in San Francisco Bay Area with over 10 years of experience in UX. I’m currently working at Cisco as a Lead Product Designer. Before joining Cisco, I worked at digital agencies designing consumer-facing websites, mobile sites and software applications for diverse clients.
I thrive in making complex systems easy to understand and use. I do this by analyzing and understanding user goals and business needs and bring them together into a cohesive and usable solution. I tend to work holistically and think of the entire system when designing solutions. I enjoy leading design efforts across cross-functional teams and working together with product owners and product managers, sales people, developers and other designers. I effectively facilitate design reviews and present design rationale to stakeholders. Ultimately I always work towards increasing the organization’s design maturity and bringing design higher up into the decision making chain.
