15 years of apps, websites & products

from social apps to google maps, i’ve found myself polishing up the internet for just over a decade now, and still continuing to grow from it. This means a career full of marrying r&d with product, stakeholders, and data. I also help teams expand their toolkits by educating them on effective design process and workflow. When not at a computer I enjoy mixed media, hands on crafts, as well as mechanical and software engineering projects.

Live Popular Times on Google

A much in demand real-time update to the well known Popular Times block on Google Maps, and ultimately featured on the Tonight Show. I worked closely with research and designers to lab test and iterate on this scalable design. I worked closely with a writer and motion designer to test and launch this real time feature to restaurants, airports and venues across local listings on Google Maps and Search. This project led to a patent and paved the way for others features like estimated wait times.

Focused areas include free scrolling hero imagery, page traversal interactions and core action visual design. Utlimately, these features were shipped to over 350 million places across Google search and maps.

Our team was responsible for migrating local businesses off of Google+ and onto a new suite of business products housed in one spot in a stand alone web and mobile app allowing them to manage and promote their Google listings.

Linkedin Polls

I led the v1 polls effort for Linkedin. Working closely with 2 project managers, a handful of engineers, researchers and stakeholders, we brought a lightweight way to gather feedback from your professional network. We also made it easy to get a sense of your voters, while keeping privacy top of mind across viral distribution.

Est. wait times on Google

This feature that sits atop the infamous popular times block within Google Maps. This allowed for historical averages to shine through against real time and historical crowd data. I worked with the Local insights team, a content writer and prototyper to test and validate several concepts supporting varying types of data, local verticals and internationalization

Local Bookings across Google

I worked closely with another designer on this project. We collaborated with several teams including external partners like resy and open table to develop a scalable framework for allowing merchants to offer booking availability right from their listing page. This created a system for several local verticals to tap into like salons, fitness studios and even dining, as well as the ability to select between dates, services and staff.

Typeless Search on Google Maps

a good maps search was difficult, often leading to poor results or abandonment all together. With an appetite to solve for top queries like restaurants, gas and ATM's, which at the time found it's shortcuts buried and difficult to locate. Working other visual design teams to align and test several predictable and tappable patterns. This also helped pave the way for search suggest components used across other forms of Google Search.
