it's Just Me

Hi, thanks for stopping by. I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area and am a product design lead. I've been in the industry for over 12 years and worked in small and large companies. Some of the brands I've worked on include Walmart, AT&T, Hotwire, Coca-cola, Pizza Hut, Lowes, United Healthcare, and Dallas Cowboys.

I am a fan of simple design. Some products that come to mind are the Nest Thermostat, original iPod, TGT Wallet, Slack, Flipboard, and Siri.

I'm a self-taught coder. I’ve had the opportunity to design and build entire websites, learning systems, flash games, and online tracking tools. But now, I mainly use coding for prototyping and experimentation. My interest in code also got me tinkering with Arduino and open source hardware. I used what I learned to create a Smart Collar prototype for a hackathon project. I also have a few other small projects that I'll share once completed. 

I am also an avid runner. I enjoy trail running, marathons, and have traveled across the country to find the best races. You can view a visual graphic I created for documenting my 2010 running experience. I'm searching for the next big race, so if you have any ideas, let me know.
