WHAT I DO
I'm a relentless advocate for the user and believe that technology needs to work harder for people. Over the last 15+ years I've led design teams in evolving the role that design plays in solving business problems with a real focus on continuous iteration and validation to ensure we're delivering value to users. If the products and services we're creating don't fit seamlessly into the lives of users or make their headaches go away, we're not doing our job.
I grew up in the Midwest and spent the first 10 years of my career working at startups and ad agencies in Chicago. I now live in Portland, OR with my wife and 7-year-old twins where we make the most of our absolutely perfect summers (and even the damp winters) by hiking, camping, snowboarding, and enjoying all of the incredible food we have access to.
