Dzus Industries / Founder and Director (part time)
I'm a user experience designer, service designer, and researcher with over 15 years experience delivering creative, practical solutions. I also teach design thinking and mentor other professionals.
I led the design and eventual launch of the Elemental Cocktails iOS. Elemental Cocktail continues to be the premium platform for sharing and collecting craft cocktail recipes.
For over 15 years, I've been running a solo design and research consulting business serving a diverse client base focused on the San Francisco Bay Area. During this time I also worked as full-time staff with well-known Bay Area agencies Cooper and Punchcut.
I led public and private interaction design and service design courses including 4-day intensives. I coached individual students and groups on course projects and design process and developed course content.
At Cooper I led a wide range of projects for health care, finance, and startup clients. I led projects from beginning to end, including stakeholder interviews, user research, design, and testing.
