A bit about me

I’ve been making websites better since 2002, building and maintaining design practices at agencies since 2015. My background hand-coding HTML and CSS still informs my practice as a design director today, with a focus on mentoring young designers and shipping great products.

Among my accomplishments are having my work featured in Designing With Web Standards and .net magazine, being on a Webby-nominated team, and being a finalist for a PEN Emerging Voices Fellowship. I am proud of the teams I’ve built, and the fact that numerous past colleagues still consider me a mentor.

For agencies including Optaros by MRM//McCann, BORN Group, and Big Spaceship, I have led strategy and design engagements with clients in industries including fashion, beauty, media, entertainment, health care, financial services, higher education, and government – some of them are General Motors, AB InBev, LG, Century 21, SiteOne, Sennheiser, Kendra Scott, Melissa & Doug, Brixton, NFL, IFC Films, Optimum, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. House of Representatives, the University of Michigan, and the University of California.

In 2011, I earned my master’s degree from Georgetown University, where I wrote my thesis on the form of the web browser and its social effects. I credit my undergraduate studio art education for my foundations in visual culture and aesthetic critique that continue to inform my work today.

I care deeply about how people interact with technology, space, and each other.

If you care about these things too, I think we’ll work well together.

I’m currently looking for my next full-time opportunity to lead a design practice. Get in touch if you share my values.

A bit about this site

Words are set in Ideal Sans and Surveyor, both by Hoefler&Co. Code was written by me. Images are from The Unicorn Tapestries (in the public domain), on exhibit at The Met Cloisters in Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York – the neighborhood I call home.
