I am living in Seattle, Washington and leading design and interaction for Gaia GPS. It’s a scrappy little software company with a remote based team of roughly 15 people. An average day for me with Gaia could be anywhere from informing product strategy, architecting software interactions, adding to our iconographic system, or designing interfaces that stretch across our various platforms.

I am drawn to anything dealing with innovative technology. I love architecting large systems that scale. And I derive pleasure from untangling complex datasets and interactions.

When I am not working you can find me working...on my own creative endeavors. I spend my free time working with my hands in various artistic mediums and shooting photos or videos of the outdoors. Producing physical art and documenting my adventures keeps me inspired and focused.
