Design PrinciplesEnd-to-end Product Design
Combine the latest design trends with a strong foundation of experience. Pay attention to details; that is what distinguishes professional products.
More than shiny visuals, follow best practices for optimization, SEO, usability, and accessibility. Test and document design decisions and implementations.

My Designer’s Journey
Design is a Process
Design is about exploration and discovery. I have been a magazine and children's book illustrator, a gallery artist, and worked in animation. I've created graphics for the NBA, NHL, and NCAA. I've gone from building flash websites to WordPress, to single-page apps.
What Have I Done Lately?
Nowadays, I’m 100% about UX, Accessibility, and Optimization. I design web apps, online games, and institutional websites. When not working, I take Computer Science classes at Cornell University, paint murals of birds, and run marathons (slowly).
