I am a pragmatic product designer and front-end developer with over 10 years experience building complex systems that scale.
Growing up in Kansas, both of my parents instilled in me an aptitude for creative problem solving. My father taught me early on to build with my hands and how to build towards an ideal vision. At the same time, my mother impressed upon me a critical eye for well designed objects and principles of design.
Through my love for KU basketball I was compelled to attend art and design school in Lawrence where, after enrolling for graphic design and architecture, I found Industrial Deign which married my need to build efficient models and my desire to craft well designed artifacts.
