I hate when life gets hard, so I've made it my eternal goal to make things easier. I discovered user experience through it simply not being there. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so they say. I couldn't live without it, and I wasn't going to wait for it, so why not start creating it? Also I went to school for it: I graduated from Portland State University with a degree in graphic design. I focused in both print and digital mediums until I got my fill, and then ventured into the real world to help real people.
In my off time when I'm not saving the world from the crushing maw of poor usability, you can find me on any large, flat piece of ice available. I'm a figure skater in training, and it's the best sport in the world because I get to wear knife shoes. I'm also a gamer, comic reader, music lover, animation adorer, dog petter, and tattoo obsessor.
I love big ideas.
