Design Operations

After designing for over 20 years, Design Program Management was a natural career move for me. It checks all of the boxes that make me happy as a human who needs to work for a living: It allows me to have an impact on a design team as a whole and it keeps me adjacent to the craft.


"Happiness writes white" is a notion that used to apply to my practice of journaling, where writing was a sort of therapy or catharsis. However, now I capture written moments for posterity and for pleasure. In tandem, I am currently working on a collection of fiction loosely based on 'the American childhood.' I hope to share that at some point. 


Meditation, refuge/recovery, and present-time awareness are some signposts along my path to becoming better at human-ing.
