2013 to 2019_General Motors, Detroit, MI_Product Designer and UI/UX Visual Designer
Worked on interfaces for in-vehicle and out, in partnership with internal departments, GM customers and with Apple and Goggle.
I am most pleased to have been instrumental in creating a GM app for Apple CarPlay and Goggle's Android Auto. GM is one of the only automotive OEMs to have an app on this platform. An app that takes your smart device mobile experience and integrates it into the driving experience. Assisting the driver with functions from scheduling service to figuring out what the blinking light on your dashboard is trying to convey. Designing and championing, then getting this app into customer hands, is what I am most proud of having accomplished during my time at GM.
Another early accomplishment, was the re-designing of the mobile apps for Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Opel and Vauxhall.
