Hello! I'm a Designer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I focus on experiences including Product Design, UI, UX, Environments and Branding. I began my professional career as a Graphic Designer/Web Manager at an airline. That was a year before the first iPhone came out and since then I’ve grown along with the web, social media, the mobile-first world, and the technologies that enable design to do new things. I have also brought Environmental Experiences to life in the physical world with an early background in installation art and art festivals, and a long stint as an interactive designer for the NYC entertainment and podcast scene.
Once, when asking a friend for creative advice; I was told - "Don't put things into the world that you don't think belong in the world." The trick with that advice, is that it begs the question...
"WHAT DO YOU THINK BELONGS IN THE WORLD?"
I’ve thought about it many times over the years and I aim to create increased security and belonging through interaction. I think the best way to achieve this is by creating experiences that people trust and benefit enough from, to immerse in, and hopefully say “Now this belongs in the world.”.
