Hello, friend! 

I lead an amazing team of hard-working, curious and creative UX Designers as we build the future for online gaming and sports. Previously, I was Senior Designer for American Airlines and Best Western International. I'm a nerd about efficiency and take delight in turning broken processes into streamlined systems. I build tools that make my team look like wizards in order to take the pain out of production. I’m also a HOW Design Ambassador and run an AIGA Mentorship Group for Professional Development every spring.

When I’m not designing I can be found sculpting at my art studio in Wicker Park, participating in art shows and design events around Chicago, traveling, or running my booth at a local craft fair.
