Product Design Lead
Kindoma creates video calling mobile Apps for young children and their loved ones. As the Product Design Lead of a small 3 person startup, I work closely with the CTO on UX research and design and with the CEO to manage our visual communications. We work together to form decisions on the direction of the company based on growth goals and available resources.
At Kindoma I design app assets, prototypes, logos, marketing materials, pitch decks and merchandise, as well as custom illustrations and occasionally video editing and animation. Did I mention we're a startup?

Lean UX Design Consultant
For 3 years I owned and operated a successful design consultancy providing clients with UX design, visual communications and brand identity design. My primary focus was business development while acting as Creative Director on most projects managing a small network of contract designers and developers.
I worked for retainers and success-based contracts. Sometimes I offered to offset a portion of my fees for equity in the form of convertible debt or common seed terms.
