Lightspeed Commerce boasts one of the most captivating interfaces in the industry. The team I assembled has elevated the current POS system to new heights by leveraging color and design as intuitive cues for users.
My primary design passion lies in merging technology seamlessly with customer experiences, whether in dining or shopping. I firmly believe that exceptional design can elevate routine tasks into unforgettable moments.
Onboarding onto a complex product like Lightspeed Commerce represents a pivotal juncture in the user journey. Striking the right balance between the sophistication of the system and the time constraints of user interactions with a robust POS, capable of delivering a plethora of information, demands a wealth of experience and a nuanced approach.
The existing onboarding process for the product grappled with challenges stemming from complexity, redundancy, and technical limitations. To address these issues, my team embarked on a mission to significantly reduce onboarding time. We achieved this by eliminating screen redundancies, streamlining data flows, and establishing seamless links to login information.

SAP & Smart Connected Goods
At SAP I combined a passion for design with a regard for technology to create new ways to better use or understand existing workflows.
Something as commonplace as a vending machine became more gamified and interactive when it was able to recognize the user and offer items specific to their past purchasing. Restocking became simpler when coolers were monitored for inventory and replenishment was automated by technology.
SAP solutioning wasn't all loT and edge technology work: there are opportunities to create applications for users that entertain and engage, combining mobile design with compelling graphics.
This work allows me to follow my passion: giving the user something to make them smile, enjoy the day more through well-conceived design.
I use design to turn a task like taking store inventory or time swapping schedules into a more engaging and interesting experience.
Pay with Drop
In 2015 I and two other founders created a payments application that used Bluetooth technology to allow customers to “skip the line” and pay with their mobile phone.
Drop leveraged the newer tech of beacons by connecting IoT with the app and integrating directly into the restaurant POS, allowing the customer to order and pay at the table.
The idea was several years ahead of its time and was not able to get a lift in the USA beyond smaller, one-off vendors. We did have better success in Australia where Drop partnered with Kounta POS as a payment solution.
