About Me

With over 15 years of technology experience under my belt, I’ve seen it all. From hand-coding websites in a simple text editor in my early days, to leading major projects as both a freelancer and design leader in the corporate world.

The journey has been filled with successes and failures, and I’ve learned many lessons along the way. More than anything, I’ve learned that great technology products require a foundation of research, thoughtful design, and sound strategy.

While technology can feel complicated for many people, I find my purpose in simplifying it. To make their lives a little bit easier through good design.

1Design is a team sport.
We all have a responsibility to the success of a project.
2Short feedback loops.
Gathering feedback quickly enables rapid exploration of the best ideas.
3Let’s see what it looks like.
Mockups and prototypes over lengthy documentation.
4Systemize the components.
And componentize the systems. I build for re-use to save time in the long-term.
Well designed things take time and detailed precision to get just right.
6Test and validate.
Design is about how it really works in the real world.

Can we help each other?
