I am a multi-disciplinary designer, passionate about working at the intersection of design, technology, and the public good. I love to craft engaging cross-platform digital experiences and build cultures where collaboration, imagination, and strategic risk-taking thrive. As Director of Product Design at Discovery, Inc., I do just that for a beloved portfolio of brands, including Food Network, HGTV, TLC, Animal Planet, and the flagship Discovery Channel.
I believe in creating immersive, joyful, and easy user experiences for every audience—whether the experience be an energizing internal initiative or differentiating consumer facing project. I have applied my human-centered design approach and team building acumen to a wide variety of pursuits, such as creating groundbreaking digital classroom products for Amplify, designing mission-critical systems for the City of New York, developing content for an Emmy-winning PBS children’s show, defining mathematical models for Wall Street, and even training to be a flying trapeze instructor.
My work has been recognized by Medium, Storybench, How Magazine, the Art Director’s Club, Macromedia, the Markle Foundation, and the Center for Digital Government. I hold degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and Pratt Institute. I was a Visiting Scholar at Oxford University and currently teach Design Thinking for the pioneering Journalism + Design program at The New School.
