Hello, world.

I’m Virginia from Georgia: cognitive scientist, philosopher, artist, singer-songwriter, ok-runner, bee-enthusiast, and Stanford grad.

I left Palo Alto last June to brave the wetness of Seattle and start my first full time role at Microsoft in a 2-year rotation program called ACE. For my first rotation, I’m a product marketing manager on the Azure IoT team, conducting market research and creating content for our IoT offerings. For my next rotation, I’ll move into the design and user research space to flex my creative HCI muscles and tone my quant/qual usability and ethnographic research skills. I’m happiest at work when I can figure out what makes people tick, and use that data to build truly awesome products and experiences.

If I’m not dodging raindrops in Redmond, I’m probably dragging friends hiking or camping around the PNW; finding new favorite musical artists, writing my own tunes, or attending local concerts around Seattle; painting places, people, and pooches on canvases or dabbling in animation; or people-watching at Pike’s or Gas Works Park.

If anything here intrigues you, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your curiosity!
