About

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
— Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

Creatively inclined with a technical mind

My dual approach to problem solving has been especially helpful when...

  • 🍟 Collaborating with designers and engineers
  • 📺 Presenting work to stakeholders
  • 🔥 Establishing & refining design systems
  • 🤲 Integrating brand feel and voice into interactions and UX writing
  • 📈 Helping our design team grow from one person to seven people

Inspired by complexity & a good challenge

I've designed experiences & features for web, iOS, and Android platforms. Some of these include...

  • 🗣️ Community Reviews
  • 🗺️ Search & Maps
  • 📅 Bookings & Checkout
  • 🍏 In-app Purchases
  • 📴 Native App Offline Mode

"These days are luminous, as in those far October days in Tichu-Rong. There is no wisp of cloud–clear, clear, clear, clear. Although the shade is very cold throughout the day, and wind persists, the sun is hot–imagine a striped and shiny lizard above 15,000 feet, in deep November! For the first time in my life, I apprehend the pure heat of our star, piercing the frigid atmospheres of so many million miles of outer space."
