ABOUT

I like to create things. I’m a designer, focusing on creating great app and web interfaces. Just as you’d expect, I focus on the smallest of details. I love creating accessible human interface designs with custom icons and animations. I have an intimate understanding of what users expect and want from their platforms and devices, along with tons of experience crafting beautiful apps and modern websites. I augment this with my background in customer service, client relations, and consulting.
