Rachel at The Jam conference in London, 2015

Rachel is Senior UX Designer on the Chrome UX team.

She’s currently living in Munich, Germany, but can often be found in San Francisco. Before starting at Google, she worked with clients like Drivenow/BMW and Freeletics, as well as for different design agencies in Vancouver and Munich.


For fun, she co-founded the first German version of the Maker Faire, called Make Munich, and founded the Munich Design Jam. That’s a quarterly event which brings together coders, designers, and business people to build cool products over the course of a single day. It’s now called Design Jam, and events are running quarterly in Munich and London.
