Hey, I'm Austin! πŸ‘‹
I spent a few years as a project manager, database administrator, and developer (kinda) before I started my design journey. Now I wake up everyday excited to discover creative solutions and teach others how to do the same.

I'M SPECIALIZED IN

πŸ’‘

CREATING CONCEPTS

Most people believe an app will solve all their problems, but I help stakeholders better understand what they are truly trying to solve. By better defining the problem space, ideas can be generated around key fundamentals to build and iterate upon.

VISUALIZING IDEAS

People can better relate to an idea when it visualized. Whether it is physical or digital, I bring ideas to life to streamline communication and resolve assumptions. This practice helps everyone understand the story a business is trying to convey.
πŸ–₯

PUSHING PIXELS

My main addiction lies in creating pixel perfect designs. The User Interface (UI) is the most tangible aspect of a product, which is incredibly hard to translate through words alone. The right UI design keep developers on track and a product build toward success.
πŸ™

BUILDING PRODUCTS

Creating products that are useful, useable, and desirable requires a balanced team with an agile mindset. I will jump into grooming the backlog, troubleshooting the CSS, or anywhere in between to ensure a product's success.

CRAFTING SOLUTIONS

The user experience lies at the heart of all products, and a great experience is rooted in the right solution to an actual problem. After that comes the process of making something simple and easy to use, and I own that responsibility.

FACILITATING GROUPS

Put me in front of a crowd with an eager desire, and I will do anything and everything I can to empower them. People need ideas and processes articulated in a way that is relatable. I enjoy bridging that gap for others.

NINE-TO-FIVE

Currently, I am helping reshape the culture at a large aerospace company, by demonstrating the value of design on product teams. I have several case studies that exemplify this effort which are pending approval for public release. Fingers crossed. 🀞

I'm glad you asked.

Shortly after graduating from undergrad at Georgia Tech, my wife and I moved out to Charleston for my job. It’s taken a relentless pursuit of personal reflection and trial-and-error, but I am lucky enough to have found my passion. I have continued to supplement my growth as a Designer by earning a MBA, speaking at conferences, and coaching other asipiring designers. I have had the privilege to work with Pivotal Labs, and set the foundation for the future of UX design.

TRAVELING

A passion my wife and I share together is the love for exploring new places, especially with cultures different from our own. A goal we set for ourselves is to travel somewhere new every year, ideally internationally. This enables us to escape from the daily grind, refresh our hearts and minds, and be inspired.
