A few things about meDownload my resumé

I am the UX & UI Design Director at USA TODAY Sports. Sorry, I am not currently accepting freelance work.
Based in Park City, Utah, I have been designing for the web since 1998, and have experience working at branding agencies, private companies, and as a contractor. After earning a design degree from Northeastern University, I worked in Boston for several years before moving to Utah, the ultimate playground. My passion is front-end design; that means look-and-feel, user experience usability, typography, branding, and high-impact messaging.
“So... What would you say you do here?”
I specialize in user experience design. That means that I make every effort to use best practices to produce usable, accessible, readable, standards-compliant and (hopefully) beautiful websites and native apps that earn measurable results.

On rare occasions, I stand in front of people in a public forum and say things. On even rarer occasions, they might listen.
