Selected Products

Layer Conversation Design System

As product owner the Layer Conversation Design System (CDS), I oversaw everything from research, spec, design, build, test, iterate etc. Worked hand in hand with design team and the Experience Development Kit (XDK) team to create a Sketch library counterpart to Layer’s UI Kits for customer design and engineering teams.

Drizly marketplace & search

As the product manager responsible for retention, I worked with a team of designers and engineers to build a customer experience to enable Drizly’s transition from a single-store delivery service into a multi-store alcohol marketplace for bigger selection and fulfillment options. Made massive changes to the customer experience to enable the shift, including a new faceted search interface, checkout and redesigned product pages. Ran ongoing in-person and remote user testing program to support the fairly large project (~6 months).
