Driven by a desire to design and produce highly usable and useful technologies that improve human life I utilize my interdisciplinary background (modeling & simulation, computer science, psychology, communication/interaction theory) to design and develop products with the user always top of mind.

A life-long learner, I thrive by working day-to-day with smart and talented people to bring amazing technology solutions to life; pragmatic solutions, based in the best practices of both industry and academia, that deliver real value in addition to great experience.

I'm also passionate about empowering all ages towards life-long learning/creation as well as STEM/STEAM advocacy. Some of my favorite topics include HCI/HRI, experience design, human systems integration, human factors and usability engineering, virtual human interactions, and virtual learning/training. I've been described as a geek, a learner, a gamer, a foodie, a finance nerd, a hobby collector, and an explorer.

Currently working as a Senior Product Manager at Pivotal Software (http://pivotal.io/)
