I'm a designer. I help design and build digital products and services for individuals, institutions, and organizations. Currently, I'm a product designer at Automattic, the makers of WordPress. Previously, I was design lead at Readmill. I earned an MFA in 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, where nature and a healthy dose of solitude are only a short walk away.
