IBM • Austin, Texas

I received my design education from the University of Michigan through partial work in the Architecture Department and a Masters in Information Science, Human Computer Interaction. Before IBM I had some small technical jobs at two start-ups in Boston, worked as a design researcher for Architecture professors for a few years in grad school, and Interned at Apple in Cupertino.

I was in the first group of 60 that was at the start of the Design movement here at IBM and have been with the company for three years, priorly working on Watson Analytics projects and currently aiding in building Data-Viz and both the UX and Technical sides of the Analytics Platform Design Guide. The goal is to create both a unique and cohesive identity across our portfolio of products while also making it easy for developers to get up to speed with Front-end design.
