Hi! I'm Hope.
I'm a UX/UI + product designer based in NYC, currently leading a design team focused on crafting experiences at American Express for mid- to enterprise-scale global companies. I'm educated in design thinking, skilled at bringing clarity to complex problems, and passionate about creating beautiful, intuitive, highly usable designs that put people first. 

Throughout my career, I've maintained a curiosity and desire to continually learn and improve upon my craft. Most recently, this led me to become certified as a Design Sprint facilitator via AJ & Smart's Design Sprint Masterclass. I'm also a proud alum of Designlab's UX Academy: a rigorous, 6-month, mentor-led product program which gave me immersive experience with the most current practices in methods, tools and trends in product design. Layering this on top of my education and professional background in visual design and publishing, I've developed a well-rounded skillset grounded in business experience, craft and critical thinking.

As a designer and leader, I'm always learning and looking for opportunities to challenge myself and grow. At the same time, I'm passionate about sharing knowledge, mentoring new designers, and giving back to the design community.       

With experience in both print and digital, I'm fluent in picas, pixels and rems. I bring a love of color, infatuation with typography, and ongoing curiosity to my work, and I thrive on collaboration. When I'm not designing, you can find me reading, pursuing my modern dance hobby, or exploring the neighboring nature reservation with my family.

You can check out my writing on Medium here. You can find me curating my current interests, ideas and obsessions here. And you can check out my work history and connect with me on LinkedIn here. Drop me a line! I'd love to hear from you.
