I'm a product designer based in Vancouver, Canada. People know me as a strong lateral and systems thinker who excels at distilling complex data into nuggets of relevance.
I'm currently at Clio working on our highest revenue-generating feature, Payments. Our company mission is to transform the legal experience for all — fundamentally evolving every moment of interaction for every stakeholder within our legal and judicial systems.
If you're looking for short-term web design projects, I'm available for hire.
Did you know I'm a self-taught designer? I studied communications and marketing in school but also had an interest in mobile user experience. At the time, I didn't even know what UX was. I just knew that every iOS update, Apple introduced new features or a paradigm shift and that made me deeply curious.
Over the years I dabbled in graphic design and Sketch. I took advantage of any opportunity to apply my design skills to real-world projects, such as internships or hackathons. Near the end of 2020, I was very aware of what I was practicing; product design. I just didn't think I could break into the industry without a formal degree. Then around October, my former colleague and friend pushed me to apply for an open UX designer internship on her team. I ended up working at SAP for 16 months, transitioning from an intern to full-time contractor and the rest is history!
So far, I've helped redesign practice area management within Clio Manage. Currently working on Clio Payments related features. Stay tuned for more.
I successfully shipped two high-impact projects: a redesign of partner application forms which improved data collection and faster onboarding, and an application tracking tool reducing email support tickets and resources spent on status updates.
I had the opportunity to work with a seed-funded startup, collaborating with co-founders Claudia and Alex to design an early beta of their product, allowing customers to test core functionality. We operated at a rapid pace, utilizing Material Design as a foundation for my designs.
As a part-time designer at Formative, I designed the new plans page, allowing users to better understand their current plan and upgrade path. Additionally, I worked on a referral system, which laid the groundwork for the subsequent incentive system.
