In 2014, I joined the Amazon Vendor Experience team where I worked on new software that will change the way Amazon does business with its vendors. Currently, I work on the Reorder Innovations team on products like virtual Dash Buttons and Subscribe & Save.
I worked at Microsoft from 2008 until 2014. I spent about 3 of those years on the Customer Service and Support user experience team, most notably working as the primary designer for Microsoft's customer support portal and knowledge base articles, visited by an average of 85 million unique users per month.
At the 2013 Garage Startup Weekend, Microsoft’s innovation and entrepreneurship competition, I helped my team win first place (as well as a people’s choice award) by providing creative direction, creating and co-delivering the presentation. I have since become a leader in the Garage, founding and leading stay late and draw, an event twice a month for designers, program managers, animators, developers and others from across the company to come together in a creative environment to draw, network, or just work on some code.
Prior to Microsoft, I worked for Boeing, collaborating with aerospace engineers to create interactive instructional modules for employees. Before moving to Seattle, I spent four years teaching fine arts and design, and creating interactive online curriculum, for elementary and middle school kids in New York.
I received my BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, where I focused on painting, drawing and animation. My sketches and paintings range from dreamy portraits to logic-bending shape stacks, with an electric color palette and glossy, layered textures.
