I am a designer, teacher, and writer. My practice is built upon the ideology that, as designers, we should create simple, yet meaningful, experiences that strive to positively impact the lives of others. Our discipline can do more than just communicate or sell.
I am currently a digital product designer at Automattic, the makers of WordPress. Previously, I was product design lead at Readmill. I hold an MFA in Graphic Design from Maryland Institute College of Art, where my research explored semiotic theory and its role in our evolving visual culture. I live in the forested mountains of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
