On Hangouts, Google’s original chat experience, appearing in your email, as a standalone desktop app, and on your mobile devices, I brought clarity to people’s identities and established critical framework for Google’s next-gen enterprise chat experience.

MEET-lockup

Hangouts Meet is an enterprise platform that launched publicly in March of 2017. As a designer on the team, I audited the six product platform interfaces and developed designs for both iOS and Android Devices, that enabled the public release.

While on Meet, I championed pattern consistency on devices such as TVs, conference room devices, touch screens, and speakers by leveraging research and working with the Material Design Team to create new and scalable design principles.

MESSAGES-lockup

I was one of the first designers on the Android Messages team. I was responsible for creating user centered designs and introducing AI into
the app through planning and collaboration across the product area
and the company.

I facilitated design sprints and exercises with stakeholder that lead to actionable feature work and resulted in the shipment of several of Messages’ most statistically significant and impactful releases.

Messages is used by over 2 million users every day
