My Story

Award-winning designer, Creative Director, UX/UI Designer

I am a UX/UI designer with more than 15 years of experience focusing on defining and delivering successful user-facing solutions for digital platforms focusing on mobile devices and wearables for a variety of endeavors including, but not limited to: political initiatives, enterprise software for the travel sector, health services, C-level financial overviews, e-commerce, advertising, and back-end tool systems.

I’ve worked and partnered with American Airlines, Apple, Chevrolet, Ford, Shell, Rockwell Collins, Carmax, Google, and Microsoft. I’ve been fortunate to have my work with Apple featured in several Apple Keynotes, the Apple website, their HIG design site, and even in some of their TV commercials.

I’m very interested in talking about potential speaking engagements and helping others as well as possible next steps in and for my career. Feel free to reach out via my contact form.
