I'm a backcountry skier, trad climber, & dirt road cyclist.

But professionally, I'm a Staff Product Designer working as a design lead at Etsy.


Etsy

June 2014 - Present

Currently, I'm a design lead for Etsy's buyer experience, where I've worked on digital gifting experiences, and have utilized progressive web app technology and mobile-first principles to unlock new opportunites for our mobile web platform.

From mid 2017 to late 2020, I was the design lead for the Design Systems team, where my focus was on elevating the quality of experiences on Etsy (native and web) and maintaining consistency throughout our design and front-end engineering org.

Prior to 2017, I spent my first three years at Etsy focused on the seller experience, building products to optimize new-seller onboarding, simplify inventory management, and improve navigation throughout seller tools.

Beyond my product design work, I enjoy drawing vector illustrations and customizing typography for personal and professional projects. Check out a sample of that work here.
