Product leader by day, artist by night, and always a fan of big ideas.
I’m CEO and Co-Founder of Kraftful, where we’re working to make smart home technology accessible to many more people. When I’m not building our business and product, I hang out with my creative little digital native and his dad, paint and photograph the world as I see it, and co-lead the Women in Product chapter in San Francisco.

Before starting Kraftful, I headed up the product team at IFTTT helping people to unlock magical experiences by connecting their different products. In previous roles, I worked on disrupting manufacturing with digital production at Carbon and tackled free knowledge creation on Wikipedia. I also co-created CollabMark, an open source and free culture brand guide, which has been adopted by Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap, and Node.js.
Before transitioning into product, I was an interdisciplinary tech law professor, thinking about how intuitive design can replace legalese to provide meaningful transparency to users of technology. I then kept a foot in academia through scholarship and affiliations with Stanford CIS and Berkman Center @ Harvard. As a tech policy thought leader, I’ve published pieces in the New York Times, the Harvard Journal of Law & Tech, and a chapter in the Cambridge Handbook of Consumer Privacy.
All my work has had a strong design element and I’ve always been a closeted artist. So this site is also an outlet for my right hemisphere.
