ABOUT ME


I am a UI/UX designer and developer with a passion for creating brands. In my experience as a professional designer I have dug deep into both brand design and digital product design. I love typography and grids. I like language. And I like making things simple and easy to use.

I was born in New York City, to a librarian father and a folk musician mother. I grew up in the Willamette Valley (read: Wine Country), Oregon and I studied art with a painting emphasis at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA. I began my career in Portland, OR, before moving to Brooklyn, NY.

I am currently a Product Designer at XO Group in NYC, where I design wedding planning applications for The Knot. Before that I was a Product Designer at ZOOM+Care in Portland, OR an innovative 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.
