I make information easier to find and understand. I’ve been “making the complex clear” for people in all types of organizations—from developing world non-profits to Fortune 500 corporations—for over twenty years.
I’m a partner in Futuredraft—a digital product design consultancy based in Oakland, CA—where I have the privilege of working with a world-class team to solve complex information architecture and interaction design challenges.
