Hello there. 

I’m a product designer who’s lived and worked in Ottawa, Bangkok, Tokyo and Toronto. I’m currently leading the design team at VarageSale, a Sequoia-backed startup politely rocking the world of community-based buying and selling.

Before staring my career in design I spent a couple years working as a journalist — covering everything from Thai military coups to experimental Japanese noise-rock — but found my way back to the craft that I never stopped thinking about. Journalism stoked my endless curiosity for all things, and that’s something (along with a deep love of research and interviewing) that informs my approach to user-centred design.

When I'm not wading through an ocean of pixels, I enjoy spending my spare time elbow deep in a vat of frothing indigo.
