I am a 25 year old freelance designer, (crappy) front-end developer, and entrepreneur solving complex problems for consumer-facing brands. I have worked on teams at Method, Blast Radius, and Hello Elephant for clients like Apple, Hewlett Packard, Electronic Arts, Dolby, Levi’s, Hotwire, Bank of The West, University of Oregon and plenty more. My work spans across a wide variety of mediums – from broadcast, print and out of home, to packaging, interactive, and (yes, unfortunately) social media.

After sitting down and whiteboarding things out with your product manager and a few engineers, you can’t wait to start cranking away on a new design. You spend hours designing and tweaking and wholeheartedly believing “Users will love this! And then your designs never make it anywhere. That feeling sucks, but it’s also part of the game. It’s the life of a designer. I’ve developed a system to help make sure this doesn’t happen—and to soften the blow when it does.
