I am creative leader who drives innovation in projects specializing in community, social networks and mobile e-commerce. As a design manager, I’m passionate about developing designers into leaders by inspiring creativity and big thinking. I’m data driven and deliver results at any scale with experience ranging from startups to large-scale companies. In my free time I’m into fashion tech, video games, and making things.

Quick Facts:

I’m currently the Senior UX Lead for Social and Community within Amazon’s Engagement Design Group in Seattle.

I manage a small team of talented designers, and I am committed to building design culture and raising the bar for visual, UX, and interactive design at Amazon.

Previously, I was the Creative Director for a BeauCoo, a women’s fashion social network aimed at solving fit and sizing issues for all body types.

I co-founded and am the Chief Creative Officer for MakeFashion, a wearable tech nonprofit that brings technology and high fashion to the runway.

In Calgary I was a director of Digital Alberta, a board member of Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre Company, and contributed as a volunteer designer to a number of nonprofit arts organizations. As a result, I was awarded with ACAD’s 2016 Community Service Alumni Award.
