I'm an experience strategist and design researcher with a background in experience planning, user research, and digital strategy. My approach to user research and experience strategy is informed by my academic training in anthropology and cultural criticism, as well as my training as a jazz musician.

 I went to graduate school at the University of Chicago, where I studied Anthropology and Religion. I decided along the way that academia wasn't for me and have spent the last 10 years working at advertising and technology companies.  

Outside of working hours, I write and perform electronic music, draw, and read voraciously. My partner and I are parents to an adopted Pomeranian named Oliver.  I currently work and live in Chicago, Illinois.
