Delivered 10+ smart templates as premium content offered via M365 consumer subscription. We were challenged to design high value consumer templates, using Wolfram data through a new capability called ‘datatypes’.

I am a multi-disciplinary designer, building inspiring product stories at scale for Microsoft. My background in architecture and digital design informs my creative yet grounded approach by embracing constraints.
It is a privilege to design products that empower millions of people to achieve more. As a mission, it fuels my passion to exercise craft and curiosity to help deliver experiences that bring joy. I believe that great experiences are an outcome of great collaborations and considered craft.
I consider myself a ‘forever student’, eager to both build my maturity as a design advocate for people and a craftsperson that stays in tune with latest trends through continued mentorship and personal development. I periodically document personal work on Instagram ↗ & Medium ↗
