human-centered design + mindfulness


I serve as an advisor and coach for Brightmind, structuring design process, advocating for UX research, adding rigor to product development, and helping the team avoid common pitfalls in launching a new product.

Tailoring Meditation Instruction to Your Needs in the Moment

Brightmind serves as a digital meditation coach with a teaching algorithm designed by renowned mindfulness teacher Shinzen Young. I was brought on to structure a Lean UX process, and right off the bat I helped reveal serious issues with the design. My contributions led the team to halt development plans and drastically simplify the the app, helping the team avoid unknowingly pouring resources into a concept which ended up testing poorly with users. I continue to coach the team through design strategy and tactics.
