I'm a UX and product designer with degrees in both design and communication. The cross-pollination of these disciplines creates a strong foundation for digital storytelling and big-picture thinking. With 15+ years of experience, I often bridge the gap between interaction design strategy (the why) and visual design systems (the how). I'm no stranger to tackling complex design challenges with a combination of strategic collaboration and iterative problem-solving.


Massachusetts-born, I currently make Portland, Oregon my home. I’m one of the lucky fools who get to do what they love, every day. In my spare time, I chase down waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy a good Highland Scotch. I love furry animals and chocolate but who doesn’t?
