My career path
Design Leader 🤝
With 8 years of Design Leadership experience, I've scaled design teams from 2 to 26 designers. I was the President of the Brigham Young University UX Design Association, currently serve as the Vice-chair of the Product Hive Mentorship program, and lead as a UX Manager at a global public company.
Through one-on-one mentorship from industry thought leader Jared Spool, I’ve led multiple successful product strategies, crafted experience visions, established design systems, mentored designers, evangelized UX across departments, demonstrated the business value of design, and hired/built teams of designers.
As a result of having been a Product Manager, taking business courses from Harvard University, and being trained by Venture Capitalists, I’m serious about results. For example, the first mobile app I published ranked #2 in its Google Play Store category, gained 11,000+ active users, and achieved 600+ reviews averaging 4.7/5.0 stars.
Whether it’s revenue, retention, market share, or long term sustainability, I’m driven by outcomes and results. Applying this mentality at SimpleNexus, I crafted and led a 4 year product vision and strategy that helped grow the company from a 17-person basement startup to a $1.2 billion acquisition.
Having graduated with a bachelors degree in Computer Science from Brigham Young University in the top 5% of my class, my breadth and understanding of code goes beyond basic HTML/CSS. I’ve coded 76 projects across 10 coding languages, self-published multiple apps, and taken first place in hackathons. Since I've lived and walked the life of a developer, I naturally collaborate with engineering because I speak and understand their language.
