I am a product design lead and user experience researcher. My work focuses on creating consumable front-end interfaces and experiences for artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies. I have presented my product work to Fortune Magazine, the CEOs of several Fortune 500 companies, and at SXSW. I work alongside design, development, research, and product management teams at IBM. I have a Masters of Fine Arts in Design Management from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an undergraduate degree in architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. I hold a patent in haptic technology for networked components.

I am most passionate about the future of computer vision, lowering the barrier of entry for machine learning and deep learning products through user-centered design, and helping others grow their careers in the fields of user experience, data science, and artificial intelligence.
