about me

I'm not just another creative guy who can build a meaningful creative experience for you.

While interaction and user flow design are some of my core strengths, you'll often find me participating in a variety of cross-disciplinary activities including user research, stakeholder interviews, and front end development.

My identity as a user experience (UX) designer is grounded in a capacity for cognitive empathy, a deep interest in how people connect through verbal and visual communication.

I love creating polished designs and engaging interactions. I have a traditional design background with the technical chops for today's demanding user.
