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 focused 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, Google I/O, 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.
