I am a San Francisco based User Experience champion and cross-pollinator with a background in Media and a Master's degree in Information Science / Information Experience Design. I’m an advocate for human-centric design and deep interdisciplinary collaboration.
I'm drawn to UX because it interweaves my interests in human behavior, qualitative research, design, and media. I am particularly interested the tools people use to receive and interpret information and how this, in turn, influences human culture.
My home is in the healthcare communications space and I have worked on more than 25 brands, treating various disease states including oncology, psychiatry, respiratory, medical devices, and rare diseases.
Currently, I'm the UX & Content Strategy lead at JUICE Pharma Worldwide's San Francisco based innovation group. We're an agile interdisciplinary mix of creatives, strategists, and technologists focused on creating engaging brand experiences.
