Head of Product Design and User Experience at Mapzen

Co-organizer AT GeoNYC.

Previously, Senior UX Designer at Patch.


I am an impact focused product and experience leader with 10 years of proven expertise in user-centered design, research and execution of complex web and mobile applications. I work with teams to create successful experiences through data-informed human understanding, experimentation, and continuous learning and development. 

Areas of expertise:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of people and stakeholder engagement
  • Design-thinking sprint methods
  • Qualitative research
  • Cross-functional team leadership
  • Creating company-wide cultures and processes


I am also a co-organizer at GeoNYC, a monthly meetup with an audience of 150+ people (one of the largest geo-focused meetup groups in the US). We bring together 3-5 speakers every month for a themed meetup covering a wide range of technical and social dimensions of maps. Our organizing group focuses heavily on diversity and inclusion amongst the speakers.
