I’m a Designer and Artist currently building amazing connected products at sphero. My past experience includes being a Principal UX Design & Product Design Manager at Pivotal Labs, and Creative Director at Slice of Lime.

I love building and growing Design teams that are smart, empowered, and confident in the work they’re doing. My approach is not to overreact one way or another, look at problems from a different perspective as often as possible, and most of all – see what users think.

I believe Design Thinking and Lean practices are integral to gaining empathy for users, designing to their needs, and validating that you’re building the right solution. This ongoing approach brings continuous improvement and refinement to the user experience.

I never played an instrument until 3 years ago when I got a Ukulele on a whim, and can now strum away on a guitar. Unless you ask me to play for you, then I definitely cant’t do anything.

The Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game, Bill Watterson is my favorite artist, and I find it impossible to have just one favorite band.

I have 3 boys who are almost adults. It blows my mind. I make dad jokes to embarass them. They’re awesome just like my wife. I live in Broomfield, Colorado. It’s right between Boulder and Denver.

I’m not too active on social media, but these are the places to find and learn more about me:
