I’m currently an Art Director at Amazon in Seattle where I primarily focus on mobile products with a scalable system design approach.
I’m also a co-founder and designer for MyTransHealth which is a resource dedicated to helping trans and non-binary people find access to quality healthcare. At the moment, we’re in six locations across the United States and in April ’17 we will be in twenty. You can read a little bit more about us in The Verge, Business Insider, and Upworthy or watch me give a keynote on it. I’ll be giving a talk at Design Week PDX called ‘Has your misery ever been a sight to see’ on designing MyTransHealth.
Most recently, I have worked with the Obama administration to run a Queer in Tech panel at The White House to help them design more inclusive products for people across the country.
I have also written for publications like Bustle and Mic, created the Let Trans Women Live campaign, spoke at Etsy, and guest lectured at Cooper Union and SVA. And if podcasts are your thing, hear me on Working File, MTV, Let’s Make Mistakes, and Design EDU Today.
I grew up, went to school, and learned how to be an adult in various pocket-sized towns in Maine. After a few years in the music industry designing albums and managing bands I worked as a brand designer for Staples and New Balance in Boston.
