Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I currently work at Pantheon in San Francisco where I work on tools to enable developers to build, launch, and maintain websites. I am most passionate about working with stakeholders and customers to design products that empower people to do their best work while meeting business goals.
Previously I worked at BinWise, Schell Games, and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art. I studied Studio Art and Art History at Saint Vincent College, and then received a Master of Entertainment Technology from Carnegie Mellon University. I was a mentor for the Technovation Challenge 2018 season, where I coached a high school girls' team to develop an app idea to address a problem in their community.
In my free time I draw usually with colored pencils, some of which I'll share on my personal art site, devour both fiction and non-fiction books (I read a lot), drink coffee, knit, play my 3DS or Switch (usually a Legend of Zelda game).
