Pushing pixels & strategy

Over the years I've worked for agencies and in-house as a product designer. I've had a diverse career working with both startups and enterprises. I push pixels and do research but also spend time developing user-centered product strategy and running workshops to align stakeholders. I've helped build products for blockchain, healthcare, AI, IoT, AdTech and more.

I've had a passion for design before I realized it was something I could do for a job. It started with a love of aesthetics and grew into an obsession with form and function. My other obsessions are pinball, philosophy and coffee. I live outside of Denver, CO with my wife, two daughters, two dogs and a hamster named Nacho.


I'm always looking to explore new ideas and help create good things. Let's chat!
