About

I’m a UX Designer who seeks to construct the future of interaction design and develop compelling designs. I am focused on interaction, game, strategic, and participatory design.

Design Philosophy

There are many forms of design, but at the root, I believe design should include participation; participation of designers and users during the design process when possible. Everyone has a voice, we as designers must empower the voices of users and work with them to attain meaningful designs. This understanding has been gained through my accounts of research observations, ethnography, usability testing, and design work.
