Looking to know more about me? You've come to the right place.
I believe in People, Process, and Pixels, in that order.
Customers, co-workers, or anyone in between…it’s all about people. Treat them with respect, listen to them, and if you can, help them. This is foundational to everything else.
As a product designer with a degree in software engineering, I obsess about process & systems. Not only the act of refining them, but also finding the right amount needed for a given team or situation.
What we show people and how we show it to them matters. A well designed product should feel good AND look good…but never at the cost of accessibility or usability.
We all wear a lot of hats. Here are some of mine:
TradeBug, TweetAgora, Endloop Mobile, Flixel, and ezilly Design.

Cannes Gold Lion Winner
For the McDonalds Canada "Our Food, Your Questions" campaign. It was Canada's only gold that year!
Apple Design Award Winner
For Flixel Cinemagraph Pro. If I bring this up a lot it's because I never thought I'd actually win one and it's kind of a big deal.
