I specialize in responsive, tablet-first design for Google's Knowledge Graph. Focusing on tablet-based design first helps me design experiences that easily translate to desktop and mobile uses.
I use sketches as a way to get my team on the same page about a project. This includes establishing user needs with storyboards, creating lo-fi interface sketches and prototypes, and using comics to focus use cases and sell products. I teach a Sketching 101 class targetted to Google's engineers, salespeople, and researchers, and conduct sketching workshops for Google designers.
My great-great-great grandmother kept a journal when she crossed the United States on the Oregon Trail in 1854. I keep a webcomic, hoping to provide my descendants with a glimpse into the absurdity of life in the early 2000's.
