I'm a freelance/independent user experience designer living and working in Los Angeles, CA.

  • Activision (Call of Duty)
  • Amazon.com
  • American Airlines
  • BMW
  • Coach
  • Pepsi Co.
  • Pizza Hut
  • Prudential
  • RED Digital Cinema
  • Smashbox Cosmetics
  • Dannon
  • Disney
  • Intuit / Turbo Tax
  • Lexus
  • Mountain Dew
  • Naked Juice
  • NBC / Universal

  • US Airforce

I am currently a Sr. User Experience Designer at Deloitte Digital in Los Angeles, CA


What you get from me:

I'm fast, accurate, fun, relaxed, flexible, always hungry to learn...and to eat.


So, where are the work samples...?

For a number of reasons, I don't keep an actively curated publicly accessible set of samples on this site. Instead, I keep a .zip file on my Google Drive full of 60+ MBs of real world deliverables I've created in the past. These are the real deal, not just static screen shot JPGs on a portfolio site. These are ACTUAL deliverables which were presented in Executive and Client Design Reviews in which key decisions were made.

Doing it this way also gives me the opportunity to connect with those who are truly interested to speak with me about my work. Nevermind the passive observers, I really want to talk to those who really want to talk to me!

So send me a message and let's talk!
