Product design is what I do at work everyday. Sometimes that means fixing lots of small problems inside a big software app. Other times it means starting big ambitious projects from scratch. On some occasions, it means talking through problems and designing my way out of designing anything at all.
When I work, I value sketching and writing over talking in circles. I think good ideas come from different team members when they have lots of context. I care about my teammates' work, even if I don't understand all of its nuances. I think roles are a helpful way to designate accountability within teams. Making a successful product is a team sport.

Outside work, I keep some hobbies. I started brewing kombucha, swinging kettlebells, and writing musicß. I've dabbled in salsa dancing, sensory deprivation tanks, singing lessons, and drawing terribly. Ask me again in a month, and this list will likely be entirely different.
Stories are at the heart of design, and are what connect people to common ideas, goals, and motivations. Designers help craft these stories and enable people to have new interactions and experiences. I built this site so I'd have a place to write about and share some of my own stories and experiences as a Product Designer. Through this site, maybe we can share an experience.
