Work history


June 2014 - Present

I spent my first three years focusing on the Etsy seller experience, building products to help our sellers manage their inventory, navigate their tools, and onboard as first-time sellers. Simultaneously, I was designing and writing code to patternize components in our front-end web toolkit and disseminating knowledge to fellow designers and engineers.

More recently, I've transitioned to the buyer experience as a design systems lead, where my focus is on elevating the quality of experiences on Etsy and maintaining consistency throughout our design and front-end engineer org.


May 2013 - April 2014

As one of two product designers at an early stage start-up, my work spanned from product strategization, user testing, and high level UX design to UI design and front-end development.


October 2012 - May 2013

My focus was on UI and UX design for client products and marketing sites, with a touch of front-end development and occassional illustration and type design.


June 2009 - August 2012

Post-graduation, I spent my time developing my design skills and working for an assortment of advertising agencies and branding agencies before landing on product design as a direction of interest.
