I am a product designer with more than 20 years in the industry.
I pride myself on being a first-rate team player. I enjoy collaborating and brainstorming solutions with thought partners. I adapt well to new processes and new tools.
I am very efficient individual contributor. I consistently deliver designs on target, on time and on budget. I believe in sharing work early and often, for an agile iterative process.
I have extensive experience across many industries, working both as a member of in-house Product Design teams and as an outside consultant.
I often collaborate with design & user experience consultancies such as Catalyst Innovation Partners, Futuredraft, Cooper, Thinknoise Creative, Hot Studio, and Adaptive Path.
Other times I work directly with companies.
My client list includes Google, Facebook, GE, Change Healthcare, Abbott, Genentech, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, New York Life, Charles Schwab, Visa, the San Francisco Chronicle, and many more.
What I am looking for…
I am interested in consulting with like-minded companies and agencies to continue to produce engaging and intuitive digital experiences.
My ideal project has me working about 30 hours a week, partly from home and partly from an office in San Francisco or the East Bay. Occasional traveling welcome.
My clients run the gamut from tiny startups to leading media and technology companies.
Where I come from…
I grew up in Aix-en-Provence in Southern France. I go back often to visit family.
I studied Communication Design in Paris and New York. I hold a BFA in Communication Design (BTS Expression Visuelle) from l’Ecole Supérieure d’Arts Appliqués Estienne in Paris, France. I spent a year at Parsons School of Design in New York on a special grant from the City of Paris.
I moved to San Francisco in 1995, where I joined the dawn of the World Wide Web. My first job was at CNET.
I went freelance in 2002 and I have been contracting ever since.
I live in Berkeley with my husband and our two teenage sons.
