...innovative, opinionated, transformative products based on real people's experiences and needs.
Currently, I am the founding designer for Woven, an intelligent calendar.
At Google from 2005-2017, I led the user experience team for Google Glass, concept and platform design for the reimagined Hangouts Chat, Emerging Markets product design, design strategy for YouTube, and interaction design for AdSense.
I joined Woven as the first designer and a member of the founding team. I led design strategy and designed all features of both desktop and mobile apps.
In 2016, I joined Raph D'Amico to start the design team for a new workplace collaboration tool at Google. We created concept designs, prototypes, and visual explorations to determine the product and brand. I then led the platform and message composition designs for the product we launched as Hangouts Chat in 2017 (now known simply as Google Chat).
I led the Glass user experience team for the first release of this innovative new device, building the team and responsible for interaction and visual design of the entire product.
In late 2010, I moved to Zürich to start Google's Emerging Markets design team (with Lucia Terrenghi), focused on Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and Latin America. I led research trips, design workshops, and prototyping to discover new product opportunities for people in these markets.
YouTube leads Salar Kamangar and Chad Hurley approached the UX team in 2009 to help envision what YouTube would--and could--look like in a year. I led this project with Margaret Stewart, including visual design explorations and product concept creation.
In 2007, Google's AdSense product was bursting at the seams. New ad products and over a million publishers were straining the service, which had been designed for a simpler experience. I led a redesign effort which overhauled the interface and redefined the product.
