What I do professionally

My design career has been focused on crafting inclusive digital experiences along with promoting, implementing, and supporting scalable design systems and teams.

Experience —

Designer Advocate @ Figma

Web Designer + Developer @ GE Interlogix

1999 — 2001
Cutting my teeth in design. Stepped in to the webmaster position where I redesigned, developed, and performed ongoing site maintenance of three anchor GE Interlogix brand websites and the Security Pro dealer database site.

What I do for fun

When I'm not crafting digital assets and experiences you’ll find me spending time with my family or likely doing something that is related to music in one way or another.

Music has always been a big part of my life. It’s allowed me the opportunity to travel all over the country, meet new people, build relationships, take on design work, and it continues to inspire my creativity and hobbies on a daily basis.

When it comes to musical endeavors, I play guitar in an alternative/indie rock band, set up pedalboards, collect/build/modify effects pedals, amplifiers, and guitars. I’m always discovering new music and love recommendations from others, though I admit that I still listen to a lot of second and third-wave emo and the bands of this era still hold a special place in my heart.

Aside from my family and music, I’m a coffee and espresso enthusiast, hot sauce connoisseur, backyard BBQer, and a semi-amatuer semi-gamer.

How to connect

I'm always happy to chat about design systems and tools, guitar pedals and setups, tasty hot sauces, and will gladly take advice for pulling the perfect shot of espresso.
