Designer

I create product design systems that fully express the brand core.

I use animation, graphic design, and emergent rulesets to bridge the gap between brand and product.

It's good,
but—
is it design?

Concept is key in my practice.

I identify the core truth to a concept through visual metaphors and employ user-centered design tenets to solve specific problems and communicate meaning in products.

Concepts are the catalyst. I communicate clever concepts clearly and sustainably by building design schemes. Everything I design is vetted through user research, user testing, & alignment with business goals.

All that to say, I really love making things.

Recently I've worked with elbow, MetaDesign, Raizlabs, Hub Strategy, & AKQA.

When I'm not designing I'm studying symbols, writing music, taking photos, or digging through crates of magazines to create art.
