"Good design shouldn't last days, it should live for years."

Currently searching to join a smart design team who loves solving problems with logic and curiosity.

Over the past 6 years, he’s had the chance to work on a wide variety of project types including UI design, data visualization, branding, motion graphics, and illustration. From developing user experiences to simplifying complex information, he’s learned to adapt to a wide range of problem-solving techniques, all while enjoying the collaborative process and developing and iterating on ideas to ultimately create work that is authentic and smart.


In his free time, he enjoys flipping through design and lifestyle magazines, collecting the ones he’d like to come back to in the future. He also takes some sweet cinematic street photographs and still life images whenever the opportunity arises. And his air-drumming skills aren’t too bad, either.
