Mission objectives: 

DESIGN from DATA-DRIVEN DECISIONS

Making product decisions from a standpoint of “this testing shows 19% better conversions” rather than “this looks visually appealing.”

COMMUNICATE FLUIDLY

Before working in design I come from a background in front-end development. This means we can work together, faster, using a common vocabulary in cross-functional teams, to build products people love.

THE USER COMES FIRST

Bottom line. Product represents value delivered, nothing else.

MEET/EXCEED BUSINESS NEEDS

Good designers know the business needs and the user’s needs. Good products meet somewhere in the middle to be beneficial to everyone.

If we could have worked with him longer, we would have. He will be a benefit to any team he works on moving forward. Expect him to have a long and successful career if he maintains his top performance and focus.”

Join & Let’s rule the Galaxy together

I hope you had half as much fun browsing through this site as I had making it. I feel that so many portfolios look the same, with a bland “Squarespace”-ey feel, and I wanted to explore something more creative visually.

If you have a Design job coming up I could be a good fit for, please send me a message.
