Hello! I am a content designer at WillowTree with a background in conversation/voice design and violin performance. I also host the Voice Spark Live podcast and volunteer for the Open Voice Network, working with the Ethical Use Task Force to write standards and ethical use guidelines for voice experiences.
Recent engagements include speaking at VoiceTech Summit Americas, giving a talk on ethics in voice experiences, and featuring as a Voicefluencer on "The Voice Den." Awards include winning the Digital Assistant Academy's Hackabot 2021, creating a chatbot and voice assistant to educate people about their local elections. 
As a designer coming from a musical background, I use phrasing, structure, and timing to personalize and enhance interactions. These skills are essential for understanding how to connect to the users when designing content and experiences. 
As a violinist, I have given unique and exciting performances for audiences all around the world, collaborated with musicians of the highest caliber, and played in venues such as Carnegie Hall. You can even catch me on episodes of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Amazon's TV Series Mozart in the Jungle.
