Sharing with others the value of efficient and meaningful design is what I enjoy most. During the design process, I seek out issues frustrating users. It's vital to understand a day in their shoes, from interfaces to micro-interactions and everything in between. That's the only way to build multi-platform experiences that are simple and tailor-made for humans.
Impactful work energizes me because life is primarily shaped by thoughtful design. There's something exciting about connecting the dots of users' needs to shape design solutions.
When not designing and building things, you can find me in the mountains with my dog, Massimo. We're usually skiing/fishing/hiking/camping as he tags along for the adventure.
It's undoubtedly been a winding path to this point, but I hope to have an exciting story to tell one day, and I think I'm well on my way. I spent 6 years in the Navy and was stationed out of Hawaii on the USS Salvor. Got to explore every corner of the Pacific. I missed the snow and skiing, so I spent a few years on the east coast before ending up in Colorado.
