I design cool brands and apps
Inspired by fruit

Fruit is nature's dessert. It's sweet, healthy, and cheerful. I love fruit and try to live the analogous qualities I see in it.

Welcome!

My career started at Fannit, a startup marketing firm where I designed mostly infographics. I moved from there to Fresh Consulting, where I connected with crazy good designers and learned UX. I started taking on freelance gigs during this time, and advanced to a Sr. UX Designer role at A Place for Mom. Now I work as a Sr. UX/UI Designer for Microsoft.

Over the years I've won a few awards and earned many recommendations, but I always keep learning.

Branding

I did a few casual logos in my early career, but I became passionate about holistic brand design after some larger projects and my personal rebrand.

Websites

I did my first professional website design for a client at 17. Since then I've designed dozens of sites and now develop them too.

Graphics

Most of the projects in my first job were for infographics. That wasn't glamorous, but lately I've been inspired to pursue true graphic design.

Philosophy

I think everyone wants the same thing - relationship with humanity, peace with the metaphysical, and experience with the universe.

Values

Authenticity, creativity, and hospitality drive my mentality towards my work and life.

Process

My process starts with understanding, research, and inspiration before pushing pixels. Concepts and designs are vetted and optimized before release.

Work

Explore designs for both corporations and local businesses.

This seems like a good time to ask about getting in touch. Maybe you have a project to work, or maybe you don’t. We can still talk and have a good time.

Side Hustles

There's more here than just pixels.

I'm never satisfied and always thinking, so even when I'm not working for money there's something being created.

A Eulogy for Social Interaction

Sometimes I hold my phone for so long that my pinky finger starts to hurt. I've messaged him, texted her, and replied to them, yet I'm still tapping for something to do. But that hunger for likes and quick satisfaction is getting old. Wait, not old - exhausting. I wish this were less shallow. The perpetual connection to humankind ought to be meaningful.

The UX Designer's (Complete Yet Concise) Guide to Accessibility

Reading

The list is mostly to help me remember what I've read, but you might find an interesting title yourself.

Read Something

Sometimes I make resources like

Lucent

, a free

UI kit

.

These are things for other designers to hopefully find useful. Sometimes l can't find what I want, so I just build it myself.

Give it to me!
