About Me

I currently work at Amazon HCD as a Senior User Experience Designer, I teach at the University of Washington: HCDE program and am a co-founder / front-end developer for Alumni Fund. My primary professional passion is in interaction and user experience design (although I still write code for fun). I love exploring new technologies and growing my skills by staying active in professional communities.  Since this site isn’t made entirely to market myself, I will just save space and everyone’s time by just posting a current (but possibly out of date) resume (html) / (pdf). You can see a little bit of what I do in my portfolio.

Besides being the obvious computer nerd, I do have other interests.

I’m a huge music geek as you may see from the occasional post about music. Live shows during the week and I play in them there mountains year round.

Mountain biking is religion.
