About me

I bleed design.

As a visual designer in San Francisco, I create bold, beautiful products and sleek brand identities.

I specialize in building elegant user experiences and interfaces for mobile and web. My background includes print, illustration and photo-editing.

Growing up in Texas, I met a lot of folks who like simple things. That creative philosophy follows me to today: I turn complex problems into straightforward, easy-to-use products that my friend Doug's grandma would use.

I live in Noe Valley. On the weekends, you can find me hiking, biking or catching some rays at Dolores Park.

Willie painting

slide

This is a photorealist painting of Willie Nelson I did. It was part of my exhibition, "Faces of Austin", at a large contemporary art gallery in Austin.

I used acrylic on 18x24" canvas.

Corgi painting

I created this split neon corgi painting for my house because corgis are awesome.

Icons

These icons—which represent different manufacturing industries—were created as part of OSIsoft's branding identity.

Koffee is an iPhone app that's like Tinder meets LinkedIn. It helps you meet other professionals.

I built it with a small team, and we're releasing MVP soon. It uses iOS7 UI components such as flat design and the new navigation conventions.

Check out the hi-res prototype.

SimpleSign.in is an app I designed that replaces the sign-in sheet at meetings. I built a photo-based, parallax-scrolling experience for the splash page. Check it out here.

SimpleSign.in is an app I designed that replaces the sign-in sheet at events. Attendees log in with their mobile devices and the app sends a sign-in sheet .CSV to the event coordinator afterwards.

The app was released for Android and full web.

To keep the front-end code clean, I built a UI components library for the app using Sass and Rails.

UChat widget

UChat is a live chat app for college admissions websites. The app includes an embeddable widget and a staff portal.

Since the UChat widget lives on our clients' websites, it's important that it's beautiful and flexible.

I designed a sleek interface that takes advantage of skeuomorphism and transitions. I built the UI using Sass, Compass, CoffeeScript and Emblem.js.

Check out the widget in action here.

UChat is a live chat app for college admissions websites. The app includes an embeddable widget and a staff portal.

Since staff members need to be able to answer student questions day and night—on computers, phones and tablets—it's important that UChat is flexible, responsive and simple.

I designed a sleek, mobile-friendly interface that takes advantage of skeuomorphism and transitions. I built the UI using Sass, Compass, CoffeeScript and Emblem.js.

To make the UI scalable, I built this components library so that anyone from the UChat team can quickly build new features.

The OSIsoft Users Conference is a 2000+ attendee gathering in San Francisco each year. I designed the brand identity and collateral for the event.

The conference theme, "Turning insight into action", emphasized using real-time data from OSIsoft's applications to drive decision-making. The industry icons raised awareness of the sheer diversity of OSIsoft's customers—and, of course, the custom nametags served as icebreakers for attendee mingling (so you're oil and gas? Me too!).
