I'm a product designer specialized in data-rich experiences. My skills include muddling through uncertainty and ambiguity, acting as a translator between data and design, representing and championing customer voices, and facilitating innovation projects with design sprints.
I started my career in journalism, creating infographics and data visualizations for financial news organizations. That's where I get my storytelling skills, and my ability to deep dive into complex projects and get up to speed quickly.
My first product design job was for a Quant Platform start up, designing back-testing interfaces and a shopfront for Quant investment strategies. That's where I honed my pitching skills raising a seed round, and and learned more about trading strategies than my current investment portfolio would suggest.
At Nasdaq, I worked residencies across many different teams and products.
A stint as data visualization consultant on products like Nasdaq Trade Surveillance, IR Insight, Trading Insights.
A year on the data and analytics team building out our ecosystem of Client Intelligence tools used by the Sales, Account Management, Product, Client Success, and Marketing.
Lead design for IR Intelligence Products and Services working on strategic initiatives like building out new foundational technologies using Machine Learning techniques, running product experiments using personalized content and insights, building out a decentralized Client Research program and toolkit.
I started my career as a journalist, which allowed me to gain a great deal of experience conducting in-depth interviews and qualitative research methods. One of my favorite things to do is speak with customers.
I spend a lot of my time in rapid, mid-fi prototypes, testing new product and feature ideas for customer value. I work best paired with a strong visual designer and a mature design system.
The first part of my career was devoted to data visualization and telling clear stories with data. Since those days my ideas on data visualization in digital products have shifted, but it's still one of my favorite tools in my toolkit.
