Head of Design @ Bindle Chat Inc.
Bindle was an early stage startup on a mission to create authentic connections. We experimented with several chat apps (Bindle, Angler) and a Messenger/SMS bot (Wilson).
I headed design on all fronts, including UX, Visual Design, Marketing, and Branding.
Lead team brainstorms and discussions of new features and our vision of the future
Distilled and enumerated our Product Principles and Values (which we actually used)
Created and implemented the Design -> Project Management -> Engineering processes
Spun up experimental new brands and experiences for testing, sometimes in days
Our flagship app, Bindle, was the official app for the YouTube conference VidCon in 2016
Our SMS/Messenger bot, Wilson, was nominated for Product Hunt’s 2017 Bot of the Year
Product Designer @ The Hunt (acquired by Pinterest 2015)
The Hunt was a fashion and style Q&A app. I designed features end-to-end across iOS, Android, and web utilizing user and usability testing, UX principles, and collaboration across Marketing, Community, and Engineering disciplines.
Helped develop our Product and Design team processes
Brought engineers into the design and implementation process, collaborating to create great user experiences without technical nightmares
Lead internal workshops on Behavioral Economics and Gamification principles
App chosen as Editor’s Choice in Google’s Play Store and Best-In-Class during Google I/O for design implementation, and #1 Lifestyle App by Apple
The Polls feature that I researched, designed, and iterated was the first new content type on our app and resulted in a 40% increase in retention for users who started a poll
