User Research

Understanding your users – their motives, goals, and behaviors – is essential to designing a product that meets their needs and is intuitive to use.

Strategy

Setting goals and objectives that help direct and commit your organization’s vision for digital incentives and business opportunities.

Content

Helping you plan, create, deliver, and govern content across all digital platforms. Ensuring that you have usable, structured, and discoverable content to improve the user experience.

I believe in creating goal-driven design experiences – prioritizing the intersection of business and user goals, and the products designed to bring them together.
