I'm a digital product design director with 15+ years of experience crafting interactive experiences for over 100 companies, some international awards, and a successful exit. I work closely with early-stage founders understanding their business and providing holistic end-to-end design solutions on long-term engagements with a team of remote specialists who under my leadership consistently deliver all the required design efforts for a startup to launch, iterate, move fast, and scale.
