My focus is on conceptualizing and experimental design. I’m always trying to discover new ways of approaching a problem. I enjoy telling the story in my design, creating a personal connection between product and user through empathy as well as a true understanding of an issue or obstacle to overcome.
*Experimental design: Be fearless and challenge the status quo.
Where I am usually focused...
I usually get asked what parts of the design process I focus on. In truth, during the lifecycle of a project I’ll touch every aspect of the design process in some way. However, there are a few key areas I focus most of my attention on. Those areas revolve mostly around the "up front work". Things like product and implementation strategy, aligning expectations with stakeholders, the architecture, IxD execution as well as working very closely with engineering and product management to build the best possible MVP for that product or feature.
Then we repeat the process and refine our features over time with user research and market response. Working in a fast-paced agile environment has helped me to refine my process over the years and gain more trust from my engineering and product teams.

The TAG Heuer Connected watch has been manufactured in collaboration with top partners Google and Intel, bringing the best of both worlds: Swiss luxury watchmaking and Silicon Valley Technology. I assisted the core design team at Chaotic Moon Studios (now Fjord) in designing key experiences for the android companion app as well as creating proof of concepts for connecting additional apps and data sources.
This is a look into the ATL (Atlanta, GA) ATX (Austin, TX) SF (San Francisco, CA) “hipster” culture. What this hopes to be is a look into a growing “indie”, “hipster” or whatever you like’d like call it stereotype. What are their motivations? How do they think? These are things I hope to find out. I am hoping I can turn some insights into something unique anduseful for an entire generation.
This is also meant to be a bit of satire, if that wasn’t clear.
This project is an ethnographic study that focus on how individuals interact with one another, mostly for the first time. How do they engage one another. How do they begin to break down social barriers.
