Web Designer + Creative Developer Seattle WA Ré­su­mé

Philosophy

I believe in the value of good user experience. I worship the power of rapid prototyping. I advocate pattern libraries as design and documentation systems. I yearn for a future where co-located, co-managed designers and developers integrate their workflows into one that transcends the organizational divide, empowering each other to design the feasible and build the usable.

Education

I'm forever grateful for my liberal arts education at Dartmouth College. In addition to all the courses you would expect a C.S. major to have taken, I have also received introductory-level and yet rigorous training in drawing, photography, film studies, audio-visual programming, and 3D animation. The most unforgettable lecture? Having Alison Ouellette-Kirby and Noah Kirby teach us melting and pouring 2,220 °F liquid iron into our hand-prepared clay molds! I graduated in 2015 with highest honors.

Work Experience

I design and prototype web UX at Microsoft. You can also experience my bullet-proof logic under the hood of Dynamics 365 for Talent and Power BI. I pour lots of passion and creative energy into designing and engineering interactive pattern libraries that accelerate exploration and lubricate designer-developer communication.

Projects

I go to great lengths to craft objects, systems, interfaces, and experiences that are visually and functionally delightful. These are the side projects I worked on all day without looking at my watch.
