I am a senior UX designer based out of Fort Wayne, IN. I’ve been known to work as a web designer, graphic designer, interactive designer, UX designer, product designer and mobile app designer over the past decade. Design has been my passion for as long as I can remember and I’ve been very fortunate to work for many companies of varying sizes across the country. I just moved back to the Midwest in order to settle down with my wife and dogs.
I am a builder and a painter. I build and paint plastic models ranging from Gunpla to Warhammer with my wife. We tend to have a lot of board game nights which have several miniatures that require attention. I apologize ahead of time for having paint on my hands.
I am an tech enthusiast. I enjoy getting my hands on the newest devices for development purposes and due to a healthy respect for product design.
There has to be a reason for everything.
