About me
I'm a Lead UX/Product Designer with more than 16 years of experience in both the B2B and B2C worlds. Currently working at the Financial Times in London as a Digital Product Designer, I've built my design career in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles working across various industries. While remaining a hands-on product designer, I've built and led small design teams.

    Guitar Center - UX/Product Design and StrategyGuitar Center is well-known as a giant eCommerce platform as well as a brick-and-mortar store for musical instruments.
