Thinking in systems

My 9-to-5 is with Electronic Arts (EA), where I am part of the design systems team. Before that I was with Purple, Rock, Scissors, where I worked with companies like Facebook and Stetson University. During my off hours, I explore visual designs for myself and others. Straddling the line between the two allows me to focus on what I enjoy the most: identities and systems. Whether it’s a type stack to compliment a logo, animations that are on-brand, or creating pattern libraries. That’s where I'm most comfortable.

The days before design

Between college (go Knights) and my career was where I took my passion for wakeskating to the big leagues. It was my original creative outlet. How I rode and what tricks I focused on was methodical and calculated. I was also known for spending hours on stencils and sticker placement. Every piece of art had its place. You can say that my thoughtfulness and attention to detail still live on to this day.
