I’m a designer and a new transplant to Austin, where I moved to escape the Chicago winters. I’m a curious person with a background in fine arts, programming, and visual design.
For the past few years, I worked for a small software company designing enterprise solutions. While there, I had the opportunity to build the design department from the ground up, optimizing workflows to increase efficiency in the design/dev lifecycle. I take pride in my ability to take apart complex logistical problems and reassemble them into fluid user interactions.
Outside of my life as a designer, I’m an avid traveler, cook, cyclist, and carpenter.
