HERE'S WHAT I'M DOING

Bridging the gap between Creative and Technical

I am passionate about technology, and I thrive in a fast paced startup environment. With my background in visual arts as well as my experience working in technical and managerial roles, I am able communicate with colleagues and understand design challenges from interdisciplinary perspectives. I have experience in mobile apps for Android and iOS as well as web and mobile-web based projects. With three years of design and product management experience, in graduate school as well as startups, and ten years of experience in photography and videography, I offer strong written, verbal and visual communication skills with a critical eye for aesthetics and detail.

As a product manager, I have the versatility to collaborate with the design team to create intuitive and visually impactful products, as well as being able to work with the development team to establish technical specifications that are efficient to build and maintain. I bring excellent time management skills and experience working with rapid, iterative design process within an Agile project management environment.

I have a masters degree from the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver, BC. This industry-focused program is the first of its kind in Canada, bringing together the resources of Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and Emily Carr University of Art and Design. This applied masters degree is focused on rapid prototyping in small teams working with industry clients. During this degree, I gained experience in product management, product design, rapid prototyping, game design and agile project management. I also graduated with honours from Simon Fraser University’s communications department, where I studied the history of technology and design, in addition to a minor in film history, as well as a associate certificate in professional video editing from BCIT.

I have recently returned from a vagabond sabbatical, where I took a gap year to travel around the world as an ultralight solo backpacker. During this adventure, I travelled across four continents and visited some of the most isolated countries in the world. I have recently moved down to the Bay Area, and I am excited to start a new phase of my career in Silicon Valley. I am a dual Canadian and US Citizen, which allows me to work on either side of the border.
