Who is this guy?

I am a User Experience professional living just north of San Francisco. Also a motorcyclist, photographer, cook, and house DJ.

From my first job waiting tables in a small town in Colorado, to thinking about the globalization of an automotive company with almost 200,000 employees worldwide… my whole career has been focused on how to make the human experience better.

My capabilities span UX Research, Concepts, UI Design, and Product Design. I am also working with startups to develop early brand and product concepts that are communicated as pitch decks to solicit funding and communicate your vision in high resolution.

Who has he worked with?

I have been fortunate to work with some of the most recognized brands in the world. I have also worked in 19 countries.

Where’s his portfolio and case studies?

And more importantly, why does he keep referring to himself in the 3rd person? Just like you wouldn’t want me to publish the strategy and design work I do for you, I don’t do that to other clients as well. I’m more than happy to share a PDF, but prefer to present work either in person or over screen sharing call. Please feel free to contact me to arrange a presentation. Thanks!
