I aim to convey maximal emotion with as little cognitive clutter as possible. I believe good design and design thinking in general can be disruptive by nature. I stand my ground when necessary and justifiable, but I make sure to keep an open mind.
I’m a visual and product designer, aspiring musician, UI/UX fanatic, and copywriter/editor with a passion for delighting users.
Also, I make a damn good mixtape.
I work at . It's great.
If you'd like to see my resume (or talk about something else), cool!
Shoot me an email, and I'll get right back to you.
I've worked on mobile and web design/development projects with clients ranging from early-stage startups to established community organizations. I've designed brands, websites, mobile applications, and some fly socks.
Thirty-six-hour events are a great way to explore an idea, as you rapidly bring a project from rough concept to MVP. Some of my favorite outcomes include a smart mesh network messenger, an NLP finance assistant, a cash-saving amazon bot, and an attitude-sensing email proofreader.

When commenting on Facebook, I'm often giving feedback, answering a question, or making a terrible pun. Commenting automatically subscribes me to notifications of all further activity on a post, which is usually something I don't want. EMP is a simple chrome extension to elegantly solve this UX hiccup.
