Am I a designer? Am I a developer? It’s a question I’ve struggled with for years, but have found that I work best comfortably in the middle. I think of design as a tool as much as the latest JavaScript framework or library and find myself constantly looking to find new skills to add to my toolbox all the time. With a love for technology, I find myself always trying to figure out how things work and make them work for me. Combined with a healthy dose of curiosity, I thrive on learning new things and combining ideas in unconventional ways.

I’ve worked with many brands, companies, and institutions to create usable, clear, and efficient experiences for over 8 years by working directly with users to identify, iterate on, and build solutions. I focus on combining and synthesizing traditional design practice (print, branding, typography, etc) and modern development techniques (API-First development, Javascript, DevOps, Mobile development, etc).
