My design philosphy

I start with "why?". I ask questions to start getting to the truth of the design problem.

Team Management

Managing a creative team requires flexibility and openness. The creative process is challenging and distributed working makes it even more so. I manage creative teams from a place of honesty and openness.

Product Strategy

Design is not a "skin" you put on a product after the fact. Emotion and usability are blended within the UX of the product. I help elevate design to being part of the product strategy.

Design Systems

Great design comes when you can free up product teams from repetitive design tasks. I help create internal design systems to avoid busy work and UX/UI mistakes.

Design Thinking

I strive to have a growth mindset and to introduce design thinking across the company to improve product experience across the board. Everyone is a creator, even if they don't use design tools.

Clients I've worked with

Throughout my career, I've been humbled to work with brands both large and small. I only take on project that I feel I can make and impact and help grow the business through smart design.

I shoot photos for fun,
not profit.

My first entry into the world of creativity was through photography.
I ended up running the photography lab in my high school. It's been my hobby ever since. My work has been published in a few magazines and websites, but I use photography as a creative outlet, not a business. You can follow me on unsplash.

Woah, this all seems a little pretentious

Trust me, I don't sit in cafes in a beret and talking color theory all day while sketching interesting doors. (Well, maybe not the beret part at least). I like getting hands-on, solving problems in the most direct way possible. Send me a note, I'm happy to connect.
