User Experience Design & Development


Technical Director

I resurrected the technical team at Mindspace starting in 2013, helping take Mindspace from a traditional marketing agency with some web skills to an award-winning product and services company working with some of the best clients in the world.

Our team created a new platform for digital learning and content creation, Fathom, which is being used by hundreds of thousands of users at companies like Starbucks, FedEx, and Avnet today.

Design Director

I was an early employee at Seabourne, hired to lead all design and user experience for our products. What started with the big relaunch of FCC.GOV and the first open-government content API, turned into creating data visualization and analytic software for some awesome partners.

HomeFront Communications

Sr. Front-end Developer

As the front-end development lead at HomeFront I was able to work on large-scale websites for many an organization in DC. I helped standardize development practices, be the liaison between design and technology teams, and hone my front-end skills at what was then the beginning of the move towards Javascript and Web Standards from Flash.
