Curriculum Vitae



I am a designer with a background in graphic, interactive, and product experience design. Core to my design practice is the belief that great design begins with content and transpires with how we understand that content. Design at its best, is a direct expression of the essence of an idea, message, or experience. My role as a designer is to connect content to expression with empathy. What I strive to bring to my work is a conceptual approach that seeks to express an idea purposefully, intentionally, and memorably.

Due to the nature of my work, current and more recent projects can be shown in person or provided by direct request only.
