I'm an interaction designer who loves people, technology, design and art.
Formally trained in print as a graphic designer, I switched to web design in early 2005. After that, I rode the wave of iOS and Android apps, having a ton of fun building products that were sometimes featured on the app store, sometimes a pleasure to use and sometimes both.
I took a break from being a designer to get trained as a human factors specialist and researcher in 2009.
Back to design, I continued to learn about the tech and startup world.
My experience covers a wide variety of industries from finance, e-commerce, healthcare and fashion to deeply technical and complex engineering products.
In my free time I create immersive installations inspired by my personal city experiences.
More recently, I've become a huge fan of collaborative product design that balances both qualitative and quantitative data.
From 2014 to 2016, I helped build and develop Postman - the app that helps developers build APIs faster. My team created and directed the brand as Postman grew from a Chrome extension to a full blown product suite and eventually Series A funding of $7M.
I'm currently working on building and launching a new product called CandyBar.
