I was one of the founding partners of Lift UX, a full-service design agency. My vision for Lift was to create an agency focused on user experience design using my favorite CMS, WordPress. After running the agency for nearly eight years (2009-2017) and investing thousands of dollars into different WordPress projects, I prepared for the next chapter in my life.
Lift had a strong book of business, designed and engineered multiple award-winning projects, and had two Emmy nominations (The Walking Dead Story Sync, and Mad Men: The Fan Cut). With its success, Lift generated some interest from a long-time competitor, 10up, a full-service digital agency in our space. After almost 18 months, in 2017, I led the acquisition of Lift UX and joined the incredible team at 10up as their VP of New Client Strategy.
Based on my exceptional interpersonal skills, strong creative vision casting, and relentless desire for the hunt, at 10up, I’m continuously helping to scale business growth by focusing most of my time on business development, sales, client strategy, and partnerships.
I have over 16 years of experience managing remote teams, business development, strategy, experience design, and building digital products. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic clients over the years, including Disney, AMC Networks, Pepsi Co, Frito-Lay, Kansas University, Microsoft, Sara Lee, Allergan, WCG, HID Global, Chewy, GoDaddy, Washington University, Tenaris, Meta, Publix, A+E Networks, and many others.
I’m passionate about remote work, digital strategy, creating new design experiences, managing and growing distributed teams, providing excellent customer service, coaching others to be the best they can be, and building long-lasting relationships with my clients. Most importantly, we’ll always have fun doing so!
