ABOUT

For the past 10 years I've been working to put my dent in the universe as a product designer and strategist. I started my career with a B.A. in Design Studies with a focus in Interaction Design from the University of Washington. Self-directed, curious, and a bit methodical I didn’t stop there. While still in school, I made sure to compliment my degree with studies in computer science, informatics, marketing, business administration, economics, and cognitive science.

Since then, I’ve continued broaden my skill set first in video production and motion design at Digital Kitchen. Then I dabbled a bit in architecture and quickly followed it with a stint in advertising at CP+B where I began specializing in complex systems and ecosystem development. Now, I spend most of my time thinking about how emerging technology platforms like AI can better support human behavior as a senior designer in the Microsoft Windows design studio.

I consider myself fortunate to have worked in a number of different industries for world-class companies taking on challenges big and small. While I haven’t always succeeded, my aim will always be to create something with meaningful, positive impact.

Methodology

RESEARCH. STRATEGY. DESIGN

There is no one, sure-fire way to attack a problem.  Every problem is slightly different so you get to come at it in a different way. Each time, you learn a little bit more. Sometimes it is a steep learn curve about a new topic or maybe it is just a new lens you have to try on to get another perspective to an age-old problem. Whatever it is, that's what makes the process so much fun! My approach is simple: understand the problem, figure out a plan to solve it, and give it a try.

FEATURED WORK

What would design be without practical applications to put it to good use? Below are some of my projects which exemplify how I approach my work and the quality to which I hold myself accountable.
