Projects

— PROJECT NAME

Google Pixel Tablet (released 2023)


— ROLES

Content design

Cross-functional collaboration

I was the initial UX content designer on this exciting product. In collaboration with a cross-functional team composed of Product, Engineering, Research, and Legal, I helped create the initial content design for the new dockable Pixel tablet that goes from tablet mode to hub mode when docked. 


In addition to this, I also collaborated with the team to create processes and procedures to ensure that content design collaborated with other functions to get the best outcome for the resources utilized throughout the design process.

— PROJECT NAME

Google+ADT


— ROLES

Content design

Cross-functional collaboration

I was part of the team that worked on projects for the Google+ADT home security partnership that leveraged Google's technology with ADT's hardware to make homes more secure. 


One of the key projects was a dual-purpose app and desktop scheduling system. Customers would use it to set up in preparation for their ADT installation of Nest smart home security products. On the ADT side, technicians would use it to install security systems, check camera angles, test security systems, and ensure everything was working correctly.


I collaborated closely with designers, design program managers, product managers, UX researchers, and cross-functional teams in creating an experience that met both user groups' needs.
