I’m a UX and product designer based in Chicago by way of Michigan. I make clean and compelling designs backed by research and testing, and I love teaching myself new skills and techniques to solve problems. I’ve been a game designer, a teacher, a mathematician, a programmer, an artist, and a musician; my eclectic background allows me to see things from a unique perspective.
In addition to design, I enjoy games of all kinds and I’m rarely seen without one in hand. I can't remember the last time I played a game and couldn't think of a new way to modify it. In my spare time when I’m not gaming, I love to find ways to combine my creative hobbies with my favorite video game series to produce something both new and nostalgic. I’m also an aficionado of bad-movies, and I believe having many experiences with the worst examples of things helps to strengthen my intuition and drive for constant improvement.
