Product Management & Design

As a Product Manager, I approach product development as a dialog. Conducting research, analyzing what is cutting edge, and asking the right questions are important elements that contribute to a projects success. I believe Product Team's can do their best work when they take calculated risks, remain agile and get creative. Through driving strategic workshops, meetings and critiques: manager's can influence the direction of a product and help bring the team together.

As a Designer I believe systems should be transparent, honest and unobtrusive. Automation should be a partner to the user's goals and not a dumb replacement for them. I push myself to consider what it is that I am making and how it may impact those who have to interact with it. By considering the feedback of stakeholders and helping curate the design process, I believe Designer's can quickly expand-on or develop new products that achieve these goals.
