Doing some good stuff.
UX Design Lead with an ever-present optimism and knack for cross-functional collaboration. I drive a diverse set of innovative projects across Google Maps. I oversee a team of UX designers, UX researchers, visual designers, 3D designers, prototypers and writers currently focussed on creating Maps experiences that leverage augmented reality.
Previously at Google, I led design for Google Earth, Project Sunroof, Google Earth Outreach, and Google Apply. Prior to joining Google, I designed experiences for Nike.com and Samsung Global at the interactive agency, R/GA. For the past 5 years, I've enjoyed teaching design classes in New York City, Moscow, Mexico City, and Barcelona.
I’ve been honored to speak about my work on stage at IxDA's Interaction South America, Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture & Design, and San Francisco's GIS Day. You can also learn more about my approach to design in written and audio form: Creative Bloq, Net Magazine, Design Edu Today podcast, and Look At Me.
