I tailor design efforts to emphasize strategy, empathy, engagement and brand alignment. I bring an agnostic, eclectic sensibility to projects, leveraging testing and heuristics. I most recently applied my skills as visual designer @ Facebook while developing a social app for a small team across the pond in Paris. Ça va?
Ever in the pursuit of timely, buttoned-up deliverables, I'm comfortable collaborating, cranking solo, or managing design. My verbal skills and presentation style are relaxed and on point. I'm poised under deadline and pepper the work day with humor and motivation. I evolve my aesthetic and leverage innovations in technologies to establish and maintain best practices while pushing the boundaries in an effort to tease out the most compelling work. I'm rigorous about process but stay agile throughout the design flow. I keep my scrum reports short. Fast iteration is my speed while maintaining end-game business objectives of the client.
Specialties: UX/UI, pattern libraries, brand strategy, infographics, data visualization, photography, copy writing, presentation design, and env. graphics. Secondary skills in video, animation, 3-D, and usability testing.
Partial client and partner list: Facebook, Google, Adobe, Uber, Ebay, Starbucks, Amazon, SONY, HP, Stephen Colbert, Oprah Winfrey, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, HBO, Chase, Warby Parker, and the late, great David Bowie.

That time I was on Jimmy Kimmel because of a poem I wrote and a foot I sculpted.
Sometimes I make laser-cut clocks. If there’s time.
