Los Angeles, Ca.
At Tastemade I work on all things app as our Mobile Product Manager developing the Tastemade app, your video guide to great food around the world.
Before joining the Tastemade team I consulted as a UX Designer & Researcher specializing in developing new product opportunities and concept validation. My work has taken me into the field throughout North America, Asia and Africa working on a range of projects. I cut my teeth working as a Design Researcher and Industrial Designer in the Chicago design community before heading West to earn my MFA in Design & Strategy from Stanford University. I founded and lead product development at Culture Kitchen in San Francisco.
I believe in using the power of design to connect people and create influential experiences to improve our relationships with one another and ultimately the world. Learning, living and loving life are my primary values. I am intensely interested in exploring the intersection of food and design with a relentless curiosity of understanding people and what motivates them. I find inspiration in people, the great outdoors, traveling and food. I once made an entire room out of baked goods.
