I am a lead interaction designer for GE in sunny California, where I design and build software for jet engines. Before that I was with Adaptive Path, where I helped companies like Nike, U.N. Global Pulse, PG&E, Topsy Labs and Smart.fm strategize and deliver great digital products. I am passionate about sketching, coding and teaching.

For over ten years I’ve been planning, designing and building digital products for an eclectic range of clients in the technology, energy, financial, retail and entertainment sectors. From multi-channel strategies to production-ready front-end code, my hybrid skills as a designer and developer ensure there’s never a dull day.

I have an insatiable curiosity and am passionate about the outdoors, space travel, music, philosophy, agile processes, and the intersection of design and engineering. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoor pursuits of snowboarding, kiteboarding, camping, hiking and running, and the indoor joys of writing, reading, coding and homebrewing.

In my journey I’ve worked as a wilderness guide, snowboard instructor, camp counselor, windsurfing director, envelope stuffer, standardized test grader, shipping manager, pizza thrower, humor writer, arts reporter, jazz musician and barista. I worked as a professional web developer for over five years and was the lone gun behind Brainside Out, a tiny web design shop.

One of these days, I’m going to build an airplane.
