Opportunity discovery and problem-solving from creative design and user-facing point of view, with strong experience in location-based solutions, interactive experiences and 3D environments using real-time technologies and tools. Experienced design manager building meaningful cross-discipline collaboration, fostering growth within design to help push ideas out from concepts to delivery.
Most comfortable working in interdisciplinary environments, especially co-creation and day-to-day interaction between design and engineering. The intersection of these two disciplines is where value-added innovation (read: magic) happens. Comfortable navigating ambiguity to identify core customer needs, keeping near and long-term value in mind.
Currently leading a cross-functional team at HERE Technologies, developing HERE's first full map customization application (not yet released), targeting all customers of HERE client-side products and solutions.
