About Me

About Me

Hello! I am a Principal Product Designer at Esri. I work on ArcGIS Hub, a content-management-system designed to connect organizations with their communities to make better informed data-driven decisions. I specialize in complex authoring tools that transform content-heavy systems into attractive, informational web applications targeted at a non-technical audience.


I believe in user-centered design and have years of experience with agile on both stream and cross-functional scrum teams collaborating with product managers and developers to take problems from ideation through execution. My day-to-day activities include research, wireframing, prototyping in Figma, usability testing, and quality assurance testing. In addition, I also help manage theme variables and contribute HTML/CSS when needed to provide direction on using our design system components.

Personally being very passionate about web accessibility, I’ve trained designers and developers in my own team and across the company on how to optimize applications for assistive technologies. As my team is one of the few in the company that releases weekly, I also manage our product’s accessibility conformance report through an online status page that I update as issues are reported or fixed.

Free Time

When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking with my dog, writing fiction, video editing, image manipulation, and doing a little bit of container gardening. Most of my garden is raspberries and strawberries, but I have a solid contingent of Home Depot buckets that I use for growing tomatoes and herbs. I’ve tried carrots in a bucket, but alas, they wind up being no bigger than my pinkie.
