Work

Below is a selection of recent product design work.

Cavnue

2022-2023

Staff Product Designer

Cavnue is on a mission to bridge the gap between current autonomous vehicle capabilities and the promised future of full self-driving.

When I was brought on to the product team, our main goal was to take the overwhelming amount of data generated by Cavnue's hardware system and surface it in a way that was valuable to our end user.

Revel

2019-2022

Senior Product Designer

I joined Revel as their first designer in the Summer of 2019 - a pivotal time in the company's growth.

I was tasked with designing a full suite of internal tools that would allow the company to bring all their operations and logistics in-house.

I worked closely with nearly every department lead in the company to ensure that the tools we built met the needs of all who'd be using it. As a result, once we released the tools, we saw a huge spike productivity and financial efficiency.

In addition to internal tools I was a key stakeholder on a number of user-facing, high-revenue initiatives. For example I led design for a unique, passenger facing tablet in the run-up to the launch of Revel's rideshare program in an effort to rise above the existing players in the market, flexing our position as a car-service provider that owned the end to end experience.

I also designed the sign-up, purchase funnel, and user dashboard experience for Revel's electric bike rental program.
