A Brief Description
I am an interactive designer with a strong background in web and application design but with lots of experience and interest in other areas as well.
A Brief History
In 2010, after working for almost four years in web and graphic design, I decided it was time to step up my game. After seeing a tweet from Erik Spiekermann, I quit my job in Salt Lake City and moved to Berlin to help out for a few months. I returned to the US just in time for my first daughter to be born and then in October moved the new family to Barcelona where I am now finishing my Master's in Design and Art Direction. Meanwhile, I've been working with a couple tech startups, helping design and develop web applications. Oh, and I've been tinkering with a couple projects of my own as well. I hope to have them ready to show the world soon.
A Little Bit More
I am passionate about all things web and technology. I pride myself with keeping up on the latest best practices on the web and have recently gotten much more involved in mobile design.
Because the web is full of people, every design begins with them in mind - the where, when, how and why will they be interacting with my designs. I love complex problems that can be solved by simple thinking. Things like wireframes, workflows, sitemaps, and rapid iterations help me plan great experiences and get feedback on them as quickly as possible.
Because the web is full of text, I love geeking out on things like web type - finding the right measure, minimizing FOUT, testing across browsers, choosing the perfect family to communicate our message, etc.
Because the web is constantly evolving, I am passionate about semantics and designing rich experiences that translate to a variety of medium.
Because the world is full of identities, I am passionate about developing unique brands and communicating them consistently across a variety of media.
Because the world is full of variety, I get a high off approaching every project creatively and seeing how I can take it one step further to create a memorable experience.
