I’ve been working as a product designer for over 10 years. My career has taken me around the world and all the way back home again—working in large tech companies, startups and agencies. This broad experience has helped me become a well-rounded designer and develop a strong, collaborative process.
I'm currently working at Kinde, where we are reinventing how software companies get started. As the Principal Product Designer I'm leading a team of designers, writers and researchers to build simple, powerful authentication tools.
Before that, I worked at Google for four years, most recently on the UGC mission within Google Maps. My team helps people update the world around them by contributing the latest information back to the map—answering questions, uploading photos and making edits. This work was particularly relevant during Covid as the communities around us rapidly changed and Maps had to adapt.
Before UGC, I worked on the Automotive team, building the Google Maps experience for next-generation, electric cars. We created a new, driver-optimised design system that could scale across different (and multiple) screen sizes and respond to different input controls—like voice, touchscreen or rotary controls. The experience could be enhanced with access to the car’s sensors, enabling features like range projection, autonomous driving and lane guidance. We launched inside our first car in 2020 to glowing reviews in both tech and auto media.
In 2015 I moved to California to join the design team at Instagram. I worked on some entirely new product areas, including Business Messaging, Shoppable Posts and Insights—all with a strong emphasis on craft and execution. I was also a regular contributor to Facebook Design, creating tools and assets for the global design community (like iOS UI kits and vector devices).
