Originally from Colorado, I’m proud to have called Portland my home for the last 16 years. I’ve experimented with a career in Finance, chased a second degree, and have ulitmately found my calling as a product designer.
Previously at Nelson Cash and Uncorked Studios, I lead initiatives for big brands and innovation teams, integrating interaction design, visual design, and systems thinking into tangible and digital products. I’ve helped clients like Samsung and adidas innovate toward the future and partnered with Google Fiber, David Johnson (NFL), and Mercari in translating unique brand stories to mobile apps, websites, and campaigns. I’ve also taught Interface Design (ART 441) at Portland State University as an Adjunct Professor.
I’m a design director who’s fluent in the creative process and am comfortable leading teams through it. Equally obsessed with UX documentation, motion, typography, and pixel perfect detail, I immerse myself in every step of the process and push the team towards excellence at every turn. Whether it’s working in front of a whiteboard or with the newest prototyping tool, I’m focused on finding solutions that can launch, scale, and elevate the entire product experience.
