As a Product Designer my skills range from User Research, UX Design, Graphic Design, User Testing, Interaction Design and Prototyping to communicating with developers to properly execute the designs and managing design assets. I helped design one of the first ever Social Media Marketing Platforms, The Social Marketing Suite at Context Optional, later acquired by Efficient Frontier, then Adobe.

Context Optional

Context Optional

  • Services: UX / UI Design

As an employee at Context Optional I worked on the user interface of the Social Marketing Suite. This tool was revolutionary. The very first to utilize all of Facebook’s API libraries.

The Social Marketing Suite (SMS) was a large program that attempted to cover all aspects of social media marketing. I was asked to do a complete redesign of the application with the idea of creating user experience superior to any competitor.

I believe we achieved this because we were later bought by Adobe.

Biba Systems

Biba Systems

  • Location: San Francisco
  • Service: Design & Development

Biba Systems created a brand new, mobile first, business communication App. They were looking for a partner that could handle the design and front end development of their public facing website.

For a technology company like this the design had to be clean and powerful. We first designed a landing page that centered around the company video that explained Biba’s app and led users to download the app.

What I Read


My Hobby

Since the age of 19 I have been skydiving. It has been a great learning tool for life.

Currently I am a competitive Skydiver and advanced canopy piloting coach.
I am a 5 time member of the US Canopy Piloting Team.

The discipline of canopy piloting is very intense, very unforgiving and requires an incredible amount of mental toughness.

These experiences have helped forge my leadership skills and mental strength.
This has been very valuable in my professional career in managing relationships and tackling problems.
