I'm the voice behind this newsletter.

I'm a Sr UX Designer at Amazon, NYC doing strategy, research, and design for Internal Data Platform. Over 20 years, I've worked in B2B and B2C companies, launched over 60 projects with 47 clients, and earned press recognition from Adobe, TechCrunch, and Huffington Post.

Throughout my career, I didn't understand why Designers should write. I created this newsletter in 2023 talking about design career growth, leadership, personal development, and corporate work life. When I'm not writing my newsletter, I love to play video games and discover the latest restaurants in New York. Read my story.

My current emails are...

💌 Addressed to you as a long-distance friend. Voice and tone are introspection and reflective. 🪞I'm recognized as top 1% mentor on ADPList for Aug 2023, and Top 10 Female in 2023. Writing this newsletter is a way to extend my contribution to the design community. My advice contributed to an avg of 261% ($62k) salary increase with 1:1 mentees.

🤖 I'm an analytical human, not AI. My articles are handwritten, leading with vocally self-critical, and strength and power of vulnerability. I also have bad grammar.

🍪 Bite sized stories that take <5 min to read. My goal is to explain big ideas, highly complex jargon, and topics in consumable and actionable language. 80/20 rule. I care about your time to not waste it. How will you know it will be easily read? Flesch-Kincaid index.

Topics I write about in Q3-Q4 2023:

  1. Articulating design decisions and typing to business value
  2. Sr design growth to leadership, and navigating design careers
  3. Vision and Strategy with North Stars
