Information architecture, design, and strategy

Technology should be built for the right reasons.

I am a Boston, MA-based design professional committed to ethical, human-centered approaches in product and service management.

With specialties in information architecture (IA) and UX strategy, my work offers strategic clarity for teams who are navigating difficult user experience problems. I’ve spent 12+ years serving organizations in government, higher ed, finance, and more. Read more about my IA & UX consulting services →

I’m passionate about advancing design theory and practice toward positive societal outcomes. I explore this through writing, speaking, and community organizing around topics such as ethics, responsibility, and systemics in design.
