Professional Bio

Never content with “good enough," I've been designing products, websites, and identities for over a decade. In my role as Design Director at FullStack Labs, I lead a team that specializes in user experience and interface design, through rapid high-fidelity prototyping, user flow creation, and feature planning. Prior to FullStack I was the Creative Director at Bamboo Creative and the Director of Design at Palmer Capital. I hold a B.A. in Design from UCLA.
