A Quick Biography

I design on the weekends.

I'm the type of designer that can create a global branding campaign for a rare disease drug, design an app that solves what we think is a small problem but adds a significant improvement to our lives, code the front-end development of a site in a tidy and considerate way, and and ask some great questions to figure out a user is trying to do.

In my spare time, I spend too much money on White Sox games, relax by performing bicycle maintenance, enjoy the company of two rescue cats, prefer chocolate malts over other types of milk shakes, and consider My Cousin Vinny to be a fantastic movie.

I was born NYC, had my heart stolen by Chicago, and haven't looked back.
