    Lead Product Designer

    Portland, OR

Who likes to write about themselves? And for that matter, who wants to listen to someone go on and on about how awesome they are? I mean, sure, I could tell you that I’m a kick-ass designer who can rock a sketchpad like nobody’s business. But instead, I’m just going to keep it brief and get to the good stuff. I’m a lead visual designer who loves UX/UI, design, typography, sketching, mobile design, toy making, and tacos. OK, I love tacos! I mean it borders on being an obsession. But enough about that…if you want to know more (all the technical stuff, that is) then grab a cold one and check out my resume.
