Nice to meet you.
I'm Sarah, a West Coast designer/developer/business thinker transplant by way of America's heartland, the good ole Midwest.
My career has taken me from the built environment of architecture, to the virtual environment of the world wide web, to the ever evolving world of business. I have a bachelor's degree in Archictecure (and a minor in modern dance technique) from the University of California Berkeley and an MBA from California College of the Arts with a focus on business and innovstion strategy, design research and sustainability.
I'm a developer.
I think in pixels, functions and scripts.
Developers are charged with the task of bringing the project to life. Good work happens when a team shares a vision and works towards that goal together. I am a problem solver by nature. I love a challenge especially if it means learning something new in the process.
I'm a designer.
My design sensibilities are grounded by my technical acumen.
I love pretty things, but I love them even more when they work. I am fascinated by the intersection of form and function regardless of the medium. In the digital age, our attention spans are short and our patience is something to be desired. Good design is amplified when the user is at its center.
I'm a product manager.
My cross-disciplinary skill set gives me unique insight.
I speak developer, I speak designer and I speak business. My unique perspective enables me to foster collaboration across diverse teams. I am able to understand each aspect of a project at a high level which allows me to maintain a strong product vision and ultimately execute business goals.
