I love creating beautiful interfaces. A clunky UI can completely ruin a brilliant idea or device. I understand how to use animation to guide users though an interface and delight them along the way.

I’ve had many career highlights – here are just a few:

  • Led by Johnny Ive and Alan Dye, I worked with the Human Interface team to drive Apple’s design identity and core interfaces

 

  • My work can be seen on all Apple devices. If you are one of the millions who use an Apple device, you’ve seen my work.

 

  • Worked extensively on the new Lyft app and helped define their motion language. The new app won the 2018 Google Material Design Award.

 

  • During my 2009 Apple Internship, Steve Jobs presented my Origami Photo Slideshow on stage as a favorite feature of the iPad reveal.

 

  • Graduate of the competitive Digital Design program at the University of Cincinnati, which is consistently ranked one of the top design schools in the world.

It’s been a privilege to work with these amazing companies:

I love the outdoors – hiking, camping, snowboarding – just get me in the wild. In 2012, I spent nine months traveling around the world with my wife. We spent time in New Zealand where we built a camper van and cruised around the entire country.

 

We now live by the beach in San Francisco and enjoy all that Northern California has to offer.
