Other Projects

Throughout my product design career, I have designed solutions for consumer, healthcare, and enterprise products — these run the gamut of creating trust to evoking playfulness.

Check out my work below.


Trove is a trauma recovery platform for victims of sexual assault.

The app leads the user through an intake process - where I used interactive form components to capture personal data.

Color and soft shapes evoke a sense of calm and support.

The Trove team originally came together at a hackathon (where we won 3rd place out of 300+ participants). The project continues today more than a year later.


DroneDeploy helps customers capture, manage, and analyze drone data.

I designed mobile features to help users - enterprise customers in construction and agriculture - autonomously fly drones and capture images.

In my designs, I worked within the constraints of limited screen real-estate, and aimed to simplify otherwise complex tasks like providing:

  • real-time drone updates
  • location-tagged file management
  • multi-user team collaboration

You can read more about this in my DroneDeploy case study.


Viaggio is an iOS app that helps people keep a visual journal of their travels, share travel recommendations, and seamlessly publish the content to Wordpress.

I helped the team refresh their visual style and championed best practices for mobile interaction design.

Piper Pong

They say confetti makes the world a better place.

This was an exploration in animation.


I'm always looking for opportunities to grow and learn as a designer.

I recently started #the100dayproject drawing 100 days of inspiring musicians thru the decades as a study in form, color and human thought.
