Making simple, helpful things.

I try to make things that work with you; things I hope you'll look forward to using. My approach to design is compassionate and often minimalistic. I'm an advocate of diversity and inclusion.

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 there. In the meantime I pursued my Master's in Health Informatics at the University of Washington, and tailored my design services to healthcare startups.

As of August 2018, I'm a Product Designer on Microsoft's Cloud Infrastructure & Operations team. Come say hello!

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