I design digital product experiences for a living.

As a designer, I see myself as a sense-maker, drawing from multiple perspectives, being a liaison in bringing clarity.

When I create, I break complex tasks into smaller steps, gauging what the human mind might require to make decisions, be creative, resolve conflicts, listen actively, and respond thoughtfully.

But that’s when I’m a designer. 

Here, I am me.

Here, I document how I channel my energy. Write about inquiries I pursue, the things I create. Come to think of it, this is where I document how I experience time. Comes in handy when landing new work. Although, I’m pretty sure I’d have made a website even if I wasn’t a designer.

I’m okay with the rough edges of this site, it’s imperfections, training my eye to see the digital world as a human creation – full of errors, pushing the boundaries of constraints, a constantly evolving organism. A canvas of expression.

Thank you for reading this far. Think I’ve managed to set your expectations for what’s to come. A generally cerebral industrial designer trying to keep it real on the internet. Write to me if anything.
