I’ve had the good fortune in my career to be exposed to a variety of environments and sizes – from SaaS orgs to creative agencies, from small startup to Fortune 50, and the chance to build design teams
From a Process standpoint, I’m happy to geek out about:
🔭 How I run condensed discovery sprints
♼ Design Systems and what makes one great
🔒 Lessons learned from previous projects
From a Design Leadership standpoint, I’ve got reps in:
🚸 Org Design
💻 Embracing Remote-First Work
🚪 Hiring and Onboarding New Designers
💬 Establishing Continuous Feedback loops
Real Life Stuff
I’m a lot more than just a designer. As both a husband to a career-oriented lady and father of 2 boys, finding the balance between professional life and home life is important… and when you’re not distracted with home, you can be the best version of yourself professionally.
So hobbies – I’ve got several! Designing at a computer many hours a day, especially as I’ve been working full-time remote since 2020, I’ve gotten more into distance running and coaching / playing soccer with my kids as a way to stay active.
As a 6th generation Tennesseean, I started collecting county seats to connect more with my roots, and driving down all the (mostly) country roads been quite the adventure, usually accompanied by family.
