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.🤞

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.
People better relate to an idea when it is visualized. Whether they are 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.
My main obsession is 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 building toward success.
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.
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.
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.
Podcasts have become a 🔥 spot for advertisers recently. I designed an analytics platform for podcast advertisers as a part of a design challenge to show my process which included research, sketching, and polishing.
Helping people realize their dreams is a passion of mine. When a colleague shared his vision for his business, I jumped at the opportunity to help that become more tangible by keep things lean and polishing ideas through design.
Like the content on Medium, but also don’t like forking over money for a subscription service? There is so much pay wall content taking up precious screen real estate, that I decided to build an extension for Chrome that removes the premium articles from my main page.
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.
Making cool stuff pays the bills, but I have other interests that make life interesting to me. I wouldn't say this is comprehensive, but it answers the question - "so what do you like to do for fun?"
