UX Manager


February 2019 to November 2020

I led the UX team at Linode, an innovative cloud hosting provider, where most of our work centered around the Cloud Manager, a browser-based tool for administrating servers hosted on the Linode platform. In addition to supervising interface design for new products such as cloud firewalls and DBaaS, I also drove implementation of the company’s first moderated usability studies and completely redesigned the Cloud Manager based on extensive industry and user research.

Creative Director


February 2014 to July 2014

We followed up with design comps for phase two, improving the visual design and proposing feature enhancements.

UX Lead


October 2012 to June 2013

While managing a blended UI team consisting of UX designers and front end developers, I promoted a user-centered design philosophy across the organization that established the needs of the customer as the primary consideration in all feature development. We produced wireframes, prototypes, and final production code for hibu web properties.

Manager of UI Development

Abercrombie & Fitch

I led a large team of UI engineers responsible for all e-commerce front end development.

My team overhauled the front end code base, drastically improving performance and maintainability.

Senior Front End Developer


May 2009 to April 2010

As a hands-on developer, I performed sophisticated front end development on large-scale e-commerce platforms utilizing standards compliant HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Leading several development projects, I mentored junior front end developers and advised designers on appropriate user interface design elements based on their technical feasibility.
