Over a decade ago I found my way into design because of music and stayed as I experienced it's profound impact on our everyday lives.
Always be learning.
A majority of my experience over the past 12 years has been in interactive digital design including; design system building, ux ui design, prototyping, and motion design for mobile and web.
I'm at my best when working within constraints to deliver beautiful, usable, large scale solutions that add value to the lives of people everywhere.
I'm motivated at work if:
- I can learn something
- a clear goal is in sight
- my work has value for others
- I feel appreciated as a teammate
- I know my ideas and opinions are heard
- people respect my time, deadline, and keep their promises

Owner & Designer 2008 ⌁ 2014 (6 yrs) Freelance
Difted was a freelance business I founded and operated from 2008-2014. It's where I cut my teeth as a designer and business owner with client projects relating to UX/UI design & development, motion graphics, branding, and short films. I learned a great deal about managing the day-to-day aspects of running a business, communication with remote colleagues, and the project needs of clients of all sizes and types.
Co-Founder & Designer
heartsupport is an idea that started as a sketch in my notebook while touring the states with my bandmates. When the music stopped, a couple of friends and I launched heartsupport into an online community offering helps and resources focused on matters of the heart. heartsupport is still running today by a new team of passionate individuals.
Since 2013 I have volunteered design services to Project41 whose team develops low tech, affordable, appropriate technology solutions that work in remote, developing world locations.
