I’m a principal designer for startups, nonprofits, and Fortune 500 companies.

UX that builds brands

Tell the same story on all channels—web, mobile, email, native apps.

Agile design thinking

I lead teams with a common-sense, agile mindset. That means we’ll run iterative design thinking workshops, and we’ll vet our designs by talking directly with users.

Rapid prototyping FigJam, Mural, Axure… and I remember a bit of HTML/CSS too

Production DaVinci Resolve, After Effects, Premiere, Logic Pro, Native Instruments, etc.
