Making simple, helpful things.

I try to make things that work with you. My approach to design is compassionate and often minimalistic. I'm an advocate of diversity and inclusion, and I try to help those who can't help themselves.

I started out as a developer working on mobile apps and game UIs. I helped ship Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, and polished up Windows Phone's apps and OS. Over the years I met some incredibly talented, immensely supportive designers who inspired me to start my own design career.
In 2016 I started a little design agency—Coastal—and began doing freelance design. In the meantime I pursued my Master's in Health Informatics at the University of Washington, and tailored my design services to healthcare startups.

After stints at Microsoft, Amazon, and POP, I'm currently a UX Designer at WEconnect Recovery. Come say hello!

If you're interested in working together or wanna chat, hit me up on Twitter or via email.
