Thanks for taking a look at my website. I appreciate it.

“User Experience Designer” is one of the many hats I wear. I am a creator, a planner with a dash of goofball. I like to come into a project, figure out the goals, and figure out how we’re going to get there. I like to rally the troops, get pumped about projects, and get everyone on the same team.

‘Leave it better than you found it’ is one of my favorite campsite rules. (As well as Leave No Trace). I believe we can always do better - we can always make it better for our users, our clients, our experiences. I work with teams to find the heart of problems that people have, and devise solutions to better their experiences.

Currently, I am the Director of UX at CAKE. I am a champion for clients and users, and I fight for design standards and usability patterns in our platform. I am enthusiastic about human-computer interactions, easy-to-use applications, adventures, new experiences, and alchemical kitchen experiments.
