I've been designing professionally since 2005 where I got my start at a small boutique firm in Chicago called Brian Hall Inc. From there I went on to become the corporate media manager for the Grand Heritage Hotel Group, providing design and web development for their ever expanding portfolio of hotel properties. My most recent position was at Burnside Digital (formerly ELC Technologies) as a UI/UX designer and front end developer working on mobile and large scale Ruby on Rails applications. Over that time I've also had the fortune of providing design and development for a number of freelance clients from a wide variety of industries. Currently I do UI/UX design at Insignia Health.
I'm passionate about user experience and beautiful design in all forms. I track current trends and best practices within the design community and am constantly making an effort to expand my skill set. When I'm not designing or writing code I love to brew beer, hike, snowboard, disc golf, camp and explore all the amazing places in the Pacific Northwest.
