I am currently a designer at Alphabet, leading design for evidence generation to drive precision health at Verily.

I've had the privilege of designing software to push the adoption of health data standards in the US (FHIR oncology), building a national repository for clinical decision support, experiences to accelerate new treatment discoveries (Novartis, Otsuka, Pfizer), COVID-19 testing scaled to over 100+ locations nationwide, and accelerate research for COVID-19, with the clinical study platform impacting over 2 million participants.

My healthcare visualizations have been used at Sidewalk Labs, SXSW, Cell, Iora Health, IHI, Human Services Research Institute, Dell Medical School Design Institute for Health, and dozens of other hospitals and research organizations.


Community & mentorship

I have presented and given UX talks at Johns Hopkins University, the Human Factors and Ergonomics annual conference, The Association of Medical Illustrators, and mentored 60+ designers through UX coffee hours. Get in touch below if you would like to connect or talk design x health.


I also draw and paint.
