About Me

I'm an experience designer with a long history in consumer electronics, designing the software experience that connects people with products. I've worked with dozens of companies from startup to Fortune 500, combining UX design, visual design, interaction, prototyping, animation, a bit of coding, and research to produce engaging experiences. My goal is to help identify, investigate, and validate the problems/needs surrounding the use of products, and ultimately design, craft, and ship solutions.

My work has contributed to the success of numerous hardware devices: keyboards, mice, gaming peripherals, music controllers, speakers, displays, robotics kits, and medical devices.

I'm fascinated with emerging technologies: gesture, voice, electro-magnetic sensing, eye-tracking, etc, and want to explore ways to leverage these technologies in consumer devices.

I'm currently helping to design one of most involved product experiences people will have: travel in autonomous vehicles.

More about me: trance, groove, dubstep, electronica, and old school funk. Onion rings instead of french fries. I’m a builder, with a bit of a reputation for constructing over-the-top props each year on Halloween. Puzzle games are a passion. And if you ask me if we’re alone in the universe, I’ll quote the poster on Fox Mulder’s wall: “I want to believe.”
