Working with VMware Tanzu Labs (formerly Pivotal) is an incredible experience. Their emphasis on working in an agile XP environment on a balanced team means working closely every day with developers, PM's, and other designers. In under a year, we researched, developed, and launched a custom mapping web application that is being actively used and genuinely cherished by the community for which it was built.
As the Senior Product Designer on this team I closely enabled a Jr. Product Designer and a Product Design Intern. Separately, I managed both the creation and sustainment of the ArmUI design system; It serves a thirteen (and growing) app portfolio for our client, the Army Software Factory.
The Hartford Small Business Innovation Lab
At the Hartford's Small Business Innovation Lab, we discover novel insurance concepts through discovery research and realize findings as digitally delivered products. In my role as AD User Experience, I am a full stack designer in the lab who is leading UX Research, overseeing and executing our multi-phase plans, and creating an information architecture that responds to our learned user needs.
Check out the research that went into Putty handyman project insurance in the case study, and the live product at puttyinsurance.com. It's a short term insurance policy made for people who do a little light construction and repair work on the side who don't need year round coverage. We are especially proud of its natural language processing capability of understanding job descriptions, something we learned we needed to be able to classify the different job types more accurately from our research.

As a UX Designer for The United States Tennis Association (USTA), I worked across multiple projects including the Net Generation kids tennis app, redesigned the Safe Play website for conducting state-mandated Jr. coach background checks, ideated with our partners around court booking app ideas, redesigned state event websites, and conducted research and proposals that were implemented to redesign the navigation of the main USTA website.
