Projects

2021
Desktop Game Shelf Iterations at Backyard.co

Worked on the desktop update of our game shelf adding in features like filtering and sorting, search, and a more clear and consistent labeling system.

2021
Space Remodel at Backyard.co

In search of Activated retention and product-market-fit, we redesigned the Playspace experience. We did this with a focus on making our most retentive and persistent features the stars of the show. Chat, Video calling, and space presence are all showcased as first-class features in this new version.

2021

In support of our marketing team, I designed landing pages for specific geographic locations. We did this to lock to a specific TAM and experiment on messaging, acquisition, and activated retention. By geo-boxing this we could do some more specific experiments to see what works and what doesn't. We started in the Philippines, as we recently had a significant spike in users in that locale.

2021

Worked with PMs and leadership to craft a strategy around launching open play spaces. Community spaces aim to drive adoption and retention for the segment of our users who have come to the platform without a group to play with and give them a way to engage and play games with other people.

2021

I redesigned the space directory to act as a home for users to see who is active and available in their spaces upon login.

2020

Worked with engineers to design the first iteration of our V0 mobile app to be shipped to alpha users.

2020

I worked on the core Envoy Visitors app team including projects on the Dashboard, the Billing squad, and the design systems squad.

2020

I worked with the mobile team designing V2 of the Envoy Protect check in app,

2019

I was the designer working on the Treehouse Techdegree program. I worked on the core product and made contributions to the design system.

2018
Content creation and moderation platform at Apartment Therapy

I was the design lead for Project Gen, where we tore apart the existing content creation, editing, and moderation tools in Rails and redesigned them to be independent React apps built on the Google cloud development platform.

2016

I led design on Color search. Working with Sherwin Williams and Mckinney as stakeholders. We won an IAB MIXX award
