Multi-Platform UI/UX Design, Product Design & Innovation

About me

My passions lean towards combining digital experiences with physical product experiences. The career path I've been on has led me towards these digital-physical challenges in the entertainment industry, greeting card industry, and the toy industry. Personally, I feel I'm stronger as a creative and logical individual when I have a well - rounded grasp of everything it takes to make a quality project come to life. To create the best and most genuine experiences for the products I work on, I study target users, test out multiple design styles, play with new products, and stay up-to-date with tech development.

When I'm not working, my favorite thing to do is travel. I try to head somewhere at least 5 to 6x a year, but if that doesn't happen there are other options. There's always time to enjoy a book on my patio, a game night with friends, or a drive in my classic '67 mustang. Sometimes I throw in an all-nighter for video games on my self-built PC or some netflix binge-watching.

I think inside the box, it's bigger on the inside. (Thanks, Doctor Who!)
Me
 

10+ years of experience

Concepting and creating genuine experiences for the constantly changing innovations in physical-digital products.

User Research

Using data, in-person interviews and research, I focus on those [people] that will use the product I'm creating.

Always Learning

From blogs to classrooms, no matter how long I've been working, there's always more to learn.

What I do

It helps to be a jack of all trades; I can see the big picture, and the details, following the project start to finish. In every new project or job, I look for an opportunity to be responsible for multiple design roles.

UX / UI DESIGN

Creating experiences (and interfaces) between digital and physical products.

PRODUCT INNOVATION

Collaborating and concepting new ideas or improving current products.

CREATIVE DIRECTION

Leading a team to develop a full product experience start to finish is my top interest.

USER RESEACH

Research is a key task in improving a product experience.

ILLUSTRATION

Organically designing greeting cards, icons, and story-animation components.

ANIMATION + VIDEO

From storytelling to product demos, with some classic FX + keying.
