Real estate websites haven't changed in 15 years. I reimagined what browsing listings could look like in the future, putting Keller Williams ahead of the competition, and making finding your dream home faster and easier.
My vision utilizes interactive modules to collect data and teach the AI what a home buyer's preferences are at a highly specific level, so that it can then predict which listings the home buyer may want to see.
What if we brought listings to a home buyer, so that they never had to search for anything?
Amazon hired us to take Alexa where she had never been before: outside.
I led our team through user interviews, surveys, and brainstorming sessions that helped us create voice experiences that shaped Amazon's vision for the future of Alexa.
Introducing Alexa to the outside world presents endless use cases, but also comes with many obstacles, like lowered attention span, and the social awkwardness of speaking to a voice assistant in public.
Our use cases addressed these obstacles while providing value through contextual awareness and personalization.
How can we take Alexa from being something that lives in your home, to something you can't live without?See the full case study →
Cities share the same problems, like trash removal efficiency and keeping bicyclists safe. I created a platform where cities can source solutions to these problems faster and with more confidence.
City innovators complete over 60% of their research and validation of smart technology online prior to initial contact with the vendor.
Paying close attention to how city innovators complete their research was a crucial part of my process, and allowed me to design functionality completely tailored to their specific needs.
How can we reduce the time it takes to find the right technology without sacrificing the rigorous vetting process?See the full case study →
My solution improved the research process by organizing information uniformly, prioritizing validations, and making the process of contacting vendors and other city innovators much easier.
Marketplace.city is now home to over 150 cities worldwide. It won the Innovative Idea Award at the 2017 Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, and the founders have since raised $1.2 million in funding.

Lager is a wireless dongle that modernizes hardware diagnostics by allowing hardware engineers to communicate with their devices through the Cloud and run debugging tests in realistic environments.
Working directly with a team of engineers, I used sitemaps, wireframes, and user flows to design an in-browser command line experience.
Can we create an all-in-one experience where hardware engineers can gather, analyze, and store their diagnostic data?
I delivered an annotated set of wireframes to engineers, who used them in the build process, and to the branding and UI team, who used them to design a beautiful interface reminiscent of other code editing software used by engineers.
As of March 2020, Lager has passionate beta testers at Peloton and has raised $1.5 million in funding.
