"Live by design, not by default."

Don't know who said it, but I love it. 

I am a user experience designer with a focus on research and strategy, and a goal of always working with purpose and mindfulness.  I am deeply interested in sustainability, system design, and social entrepreneurship, and am still figuring out how to blend those interests with my background in marketing, software design, and integrated product development.  I am a hybrid thinker, bouncing back and forth between technical and creative disciplines easily, and I find that empathy and perspective are my keys to the world of design.

The majority of my career thus far as been spent at IBM Design and New Medio

I currently call Austin, Texas my home. I love dinosaurs and dogs.  I have big sky in my heart and love to play in the outdoors.
