Hello

I am a Seattle-based designer originally from Edgemont, New York. I am currently working at Axon, attempting to revolutionize the police body-camera space.

I have a passion for clever brands and identities, elegant typography, and emerging experiences in the digital world. I strive to create fitting design solutions supported by thorough investigation.

When not designing, you can find me experimenting in the kitchen, killing it at kickball, or attempting to throw ceramic mugs that actually end up looking like shallow ashtrays :(
