I am a UX/UI designer with over 3 years of experience at a variety of nonprofits and small businesses.
I love sharing what I know, and making both ideas and the teams that form around them work great. Colleagues have described me as curious, eager, empathetic, and thoughtful.
Outside of work, I meditate, run, drink coffee, talk politics, cook steaks with a lovely wine shallot sauce, and consume a healthy diet of podcasts.
My work follows a traditional double-diamond approach: Discover and Research Synthesis followed by Development and Delivery. I always take care to ensure that products are intuitive to use, speaking in a design pattern that clients and users will understands.
I work iteratively and am comfortable with ambiguity. I rapidly prototype towards scalable design solutions. To this end, I create personas, user flows, user journeys, sitemaps, and wireframes. I also work in a variety of industry-standard tools such as Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, Balsamiq, Adobe XD, Keynote, Principle, and InVision.

John is a talented designer, who brings skill and great attention to detail in every design task he approaches. Whether it's designing a UI, or creating a video game character, John puts his heart into his work and uses his great capacity for empathy to think about how the end user can have the best experience possible.
While teaching John, I quickly learned that he is extremely hardworking and organized with a fond attention to detail. Throughout our class, he was constantly curious and analytical, searching for ways to test his ideas and concepts. He truly took the time to deeply understand a subject or concept and would follow-up by asking wonderfully thought-provoking and challenging questions. I see his passion, creativity and empathy come through in his design work. I'm confident John has the skills and potential to thrive in any environment and I highly recommend him as both a UX Designer and a great colleague.
John was a joy to work with. He quickly grasped QSAC's design needs and innovated new color schemes and branding elements to refresh QSAC's marketing materials. We are still using many of those color schemes and branding elements to this day. As the graphic design point person for the entire agency, John had a challenging job that he nevertheless brought a positive, can-do attitude to every day. Having worked on several projects, events, and marketing campaigns with him, I would be happy to recommend him to any organization in need of a dedicated graphic designer.
