I'm a multidisciplinary designer focused on growing businesses through human-centered design. As a naturally strategic thinker, I value attention to detail in the design process and I approach complex problems with simplicity and scalability in mind. I also believe I’m at my best when I’m doing concept-driven work at the intersection of art, technology, and design.

While I specialize in visual and experience design, I've worked across a variety of digital, print, and interactive projects over the past five years. I enjoy growing my hybrid skill set by learning new tools and keeping up with the design industry.

Some of my recent influences include modern architecture, obscure photo zines, Japanese culture, minimalism, and contemporary jazz. When I'm not designing, you'll usually find me behind a camera, visiting various art museums, driving the best roads in Southern California, and hanging out with my Schnauzer Terrier named Dom.
