/ / What I do at Synechron

Craft simple & elegant solutions for our client’s digital products

I lead the Digital Strategy & Research teams at Synechron. I am formerly one of the founders of Usable - an experience design firm, which was acquired by Synechron in 2015. I am involved in the day-to-day operations and growth of our Digital business as well as directing and mentoring user experience and design teams across the organization. I really enjoy solving complex UX problems as well as interacting with clients and partners.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Involves getting into end-to-end project activities.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

A Perfect fit for our design thinking

I became a part of Synechron when Synechron acquired Usable. We chose to join the Synechron family to provide all of our clients with the end-to-end expertise in the Digital space. We had worked closely with the Synechron team for years and understood their business very well. As a result, we recognized it as a perfect fit for our nature of business. We have been able to weave design and UX thinking throughout the organization as we continue to grow the practice.

/ / My skills, qualifications and experience

Backgrounds in both business and design benefit my users

I have 18+ years of experience in Digital advertising. Specifically, I have consulted as an interaction designer, user experience director and information architect for most of the top Digital agencies in the world. I have worked with brands like Google, Verizon, Chase, Marriott, Goldman Sachs, Mondelez, GEICO, Hanes, Toyota and Canon, to name a few. I hold an MBA degree in Entrepreneurship and Technology Management from the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College and a BA degree in Emerging Technologies & Human Centered Design from the University of Connecticut.

/ / My personal interests

Music goes hand in hand with design

I’ve been a drummer for about 25 years in bands in Boston, Connecticut and NYC. Since last 6 years, I have been playing guitar, singing and writing songs. I love live music and I go to many shows every year. I am also a huge sports fan, both playing and watching. My favorites include the New York Yankees and my university’s basketball team, the UConn Huskies.
