Lil is a Senior Interaction Designer at Google
I helped support creators by creating some of the first alternative monetization options on YouTube Live, including launching Super Chat, Membership badges, Member messages, and custom emotes.
I evolved YouTube’s live chat from a linear feed of text messages to a suite of interactive features. This includes launching live polls, pinned chat messages, a new full-screen viewing mode, and more.
Moderation is dear to me. I advocated for and launched a suite of moderation tools, both algorithmic and manual, to empower creators to foster healthy communities and tailor them to their specific needs.
I created YouTube's Live Interactivity design framework and principles for which several of the below features were built upon. In addition to feature-work, I also lead and manage these design components and partner team integrations.
