The growth has come from close to 20 years of creating digital, service, organizational, and systems experiences for the most influential brands, places, non-profits and governments in and around the world. By partnering closely with the key decision makers in those organizations (C-level, VPs, Senior Executives, Officials, et al), I've proven how to match business strategy & goals with human behavior & needs and turn them into credible-looking visions of the future. Then deliver data-influenced, user-iterated products into market that don't lose their creative soul.
As a Principal Design Manager at Microsoft, I lead a UX & Design team focusing on a key aspect of their most important product of this particular decade: Microsoft Azure
. It is non-stop collaboration with Engineering, Marketing, Editorial, and Program Management to launch new experiences—just about daily—in order to best keep up with the speed and hyper-competitiveness of the Cloud domain.
Most recently, I was the Pacific Northwest Creative Lead for PwC's Experience Center
where I led multi-disciplinary teams on complex engagements, as well as pushed design methodologies to bring about change inside and outside of the firm. Key activities included design leadership, structured thinking to inform CX/UX/UI design, as well as talent and business development.
While at PwC...
Prior to joining PwC, I was an Associate Creative Director at Sapient where I led a number of notable engagements for ADT

, DIY Network
,Washington National Cathedral
, Pentagon Federal Credit Union, and three major initiatives for ESPN - including the redesign of the world’s most popular soccer portal, ESPNFC.com

And way back when, I was an Interactive Art Director at
