I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I majored in industrial design and minored in interaction design. It is through a mixture of both disciplines that began my life long passion for shaping the characters of products. In 2007, I started my advertising career at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, then headed by the famous Alex Bogusky. There, I helped create the original Dominos Pizza Tracker, constructed one of the first consumer iPhone websites (VW.com), and groomed BK Whopper mustaches. The second act of my career began with moving to New York City to launch a video game startup called The Turf
Geography Club I managed to fund a successful kickstarter campaign and garner the attention of a number of large investment firms. In total I raised $625,000 of early stage capital. Turf was a mobile location based monopoly-esque game which generated over a million foursquare check-ins in its first week and sixteen thousand installs over three months. In 2012, I scuttled my startup and have since labored to help ad agencies and product companies make less bad user experience decisions and more overall good ones. My recent clients include TBWA/Chiat Day, The Barbarian Group, Wieden+Kennedy, Makeable, and Droga5.
I've had the pleasure of working on the UX for a number of great projects including: the original Dominos Pizza Tracker, Google Education, the Pepsi.com redesign, and VW.com.
I enjoy designing the user facing part of products as well. Whether it's illustrating graphics for games or putting the final touches on a chat app, I'm down.
