I like to make things that are effortless, and a joy to use. 
As a product designer and leader, I’ve done it for Fortune 100 brands and I’ve won some big awards along the way. I’ve had the pleasure of building UX studios from the ground up, and consulted with some pretty cool tech startups. I’m a believer in framing problems, creating a culture of critique and prototyping everything. 
Let's talk design!

A passionate designer who truly connected with the users and understood their pains, their needs, and what would delight them.

I learned a lot while managing Chris about the craft of design, and different methods in the UX toolkit. He quickly became the foremost subject matter expert on his team. His passion for design is clear, and his talent is as well. I enjoyed working with Chris, and I would recommend him as a stellar design lead.
