Thanks for stopping by. I’m a senior user experience designer with web development and audio production backgrounds in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Professionally, I work on design systems and a broad category of machine learning-assisted products for Nielsen Global Media (NYC, USA) and media planning software for PointLogic (Rotterdam, NL). Before this, I designed mapping software for Rhiza and made frozen food websites for Smith Brothers. Occasionally, I still do some compulsory front-end web development (preferably in ClojureScript; frequently in React).

Personally, I ride road bikes and hike; currently I’m teaching myself Blender and Unity.

I’m active elsewhere:
