I am a designer at Microsoft, building next-gen experiences for Ink in Office.

My job is fast-paced and challenging, but more importantly, it’s going to allow users to do powerful and unique things in Office that they’ve never been able to do before. Our multi-disciplinary team of project managers, engineers, researchers and designers are constantly creating innovative experiences that are customer-first focused. Prior to Microsoft, I was an interaction designer at a digital agency in Chicago, as well as 8 years as a designer at award-winning architecture firms. I have a Master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction + Design, a Master’s degree in Architecture, as well as an Undergraduate degree in Architecture.
