In my experience as a designer I have dug deep into both brand design and digital product design. I sweat details, love systems, and fight for simplicity.

I was born in New York City, the second of four, to a librarian father and a folk-musician mother. We moved to the Willamette Valley of Oregon, where I fell off bicycles and learned Latin. I studied art with a painting emphasis at Covenant College in Chattanooga, TN. Afterwards, I began my design journey in Portland, OR, before moving back to my family’s old neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY.

I am currently a Product Designer at XO Group in NYC (NYSE: XOXO) where I design wedding planning applications for The Knot. Before that I was a Brand Designer and Product Designer at ZOOM+Care in Portland, OR—a start-up dedicated to disrupting and radically improving the way people experience healthcare.

I am also the singer for an indie rock band called Bermuda Love Triangle, and my favorite freelance project has been cultivating a brand for OR\WA Cider Co.
