Currently, I am leading the UX/UI design for Akamai's Cloud Security platform. I started working with Akamai in the early years (1998), working on many of the original NOCC screens to help monitor the entire Akamai network. I happily re-joined in 2012 with a focus on making the Luna Control Center the best user-centered, self-service experience working on their main Property Manager Application.


My experience has been broad from start-ups to larger corporations such as AccuWeather, Bell Atlantic, Water Environment Federation, and Mullen, focusing on visual UI/branding/marketing for software applications/broadcast/multimedia training/web and mobile. Although I have experience with print design, my start and focus have always been UI design over the last 20 years. I’ve held many roles from production artist/animator/developer to design director. Still, my key strengths and ongoing passions are researching and understanding the products I work on and aligning those with the users' goals/experience.

 

I live north of Boston in a working artist mill community, with several of my Dogue De Bordeauxs, a Frenchie, and my two relaxed cats. In my spare time, I like to collect vintage electronics and create art using mixed media. I also enjoy being adventurous on hikes, kayaking/boating, and fast motorcycling.
 

Currently, I am Director of Platform UX for TrueFort and leading the UX efforts for Application Detection and Response. 

 

In the recent past, I led the UX/UI design for Akamai's Cloud Security platform.  This contribution was significant, bringing the revenue from 200 million to 1.2 billion in a span of seven years.
