I'm a seasoned creative leader who solves the right problems to build the right thing. I love leading processes and people, design, and self-improvement.
I excel at companies who push new ground, which has given me a diverse work history.
I'm currently the Head of Experience Design at Zynga. I lead Experience Design, mentor rising leaders, create process, drive product, and ship games.
Prior to Zynga, I led Adobe's mobile product design team. We leveraged the Flash platform to deliver rich multi-screen applications for Fortune 500 companies. I presented Adobe Flash's creative capabilities at conferences worldwide.
As Art Director for Macromedia/Adobe, I lead the redesign of Macromedia.com and creative direction for rich online product campaigns.
I started in SF as Lead Designer at Quokka Sports, a company that originated immersive, award-winning, live sports broadband experiences. After three plus years at Quokka, I ended as Creative Director.
I earned my degree in both Fine Art and Multimedia at the University of Maine, where I was a designer, illustrator, 3D artist, animator, developer, and instructor.
