I am currently a Product Designer at Facebook.
Previously I was the lead designer at Bread (http://bre.ad
) which was acquired by Yahoo in October 2013 where I joined as a Creative Director on the Ads+Data team. I worked on the experience design of our Programmatic ad buying tools along with defining and designing the Ads+Data design language applied across the suite of ad tools at Yahoo. While at Bread and ZeroCater before that, I created a design foundation for both brands -- working on product design, marketing materials, coded the CSS layer and optimized user experiences across all products.
Prior to that I was Senior Designer at Ning responsible for the design and development of social networks for Ning’s strategic partners, including Enrique Iglesias, Linkin Park, GovLoop and VA gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell. Additionally, I also managed Ning's visual branding, designed all marketing communication materials (web, email, collateral, and events), and assisted with product features from concept to implementation. 3marketeers Advertising was where I started my career as a Web Designer working with clients such as Cisco, Teneros and UCSF. I also spent time at ad agency Mckinney in N.C. working on the Virgin Atlantic, Qwest, and NBC accounts. I serve as the Past President for AAF-Silicon Valley, as well as a member of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA SF), the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), and an alumnus of the Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP). I hold a B.S. in Business Administration/Marketing and a graphic design minor from University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif.
