What interests me?

Life’s not all about pixels and prototypes. When I’m not crafting captivating designs, you'll likely find me:

Embracing the chaos – Family comes first, and sometimes that means embracing a little organized mayhem. After all, who knows, maybe the solution to my next challenge lies hidden within the amazing mind of a mini human!

Refueling through exploration – Discovering new places and perspectives keeps the creative fire burning bright.

Looking differently – Capturing the world from unexpected angles is a personal passion. A fresh perspective can make all the difference.

Shredding – When the work is done, you might find me shredding at the local skatepark. A good design leader should always be able to manage the grind...

Seeking inspiration – My collection of designer figures isn’t just for show. Sometimes, the most powerful inspiration comes in the most compact packages.

Pondering – Because questioning everything keeps the ideas fresh.
