Tell us a little bit about your background and area of expertise:
I started my career at the first interaction design company, Animatrix. Marney Morris, the founder and CEO, was a mentor to me and taught me the fundamentals of human centered design. After that, I worked at Apple, designing the home page and the hardware and software product launch pages, starting with the launch of the first iMac, iPod and the Apple Store. It was an incredible time to be at Apple. After taking 15 years off from my career to be a stay-at-home mom, I went back to school to get a master’s degree in interaction design (MDes) at California College of the Arts.

Share one MUST DO recommendation:
Hook Fish Restaurant / Beer Garden in Marin – I love going (and bringing the pups!) for poke tacos and a cold beer in the sunshine, when it’s foggy in SF.
