About

I do UI/Product Design and front-of-the-front-end development. I sweat the small things while keeping the big-picture in mind.

Work isn't everything, but if I'm gonna do something, I'd rather do it right.

Over the years I've developed a bunch of different skill sets, which I try to balance and combine as best as I can.

Side Projects

2023

I'm aiming to create a resource that debunks misconceptions in a polite and understanding way, as you might try to explain to your prejudiced—but actually kind—relatives.

A link that you can post under ignorant comments on social media to educate, without wasting time and effort to gather references from the ground up, or sanity to argue about your right to live freely.

2023

I love sketching and prototyping apps I'd like to use. Mostly related to productivity. My most recent designs are for an hourly time tracker and a planner app that automatically prioritizes your tasks.

Proud to have been a part of the Tempo team.🖤 Even though the project is no longer maintained, I'm happy to see the ideas pioneered by Tempo seeping into new products.

I enjoyed going the extra mile to advise people on how to best take advantage of what Tempo has to offer, and recommending additional, unrelated, products they might enjoy using based on their workflow.
