As a child, my parents constantly encouraged me to draw and paint, and I learned about 3-point perspective and light sources by age 4. In college, I discovered Design and the bridge between fine art composition and creative problem solving manifested in front of me. 

In my current role as a Product Designer at Egencia, I work with my product managers and engineers to define our product’s direction and ensure all solutions developed are in line with the user’s goals. My daily tasks include end-to-end responsibilities from forming a problem statement, to ensuring specs are implemented correctly. I pour my passion into my work, always trying to make experiences better.

I've previously worked with T-Mobile, Microsoft, Capital One Investing and Boeing, experiencing dynamic creative environments in vastly different industries. My projects have ranged from brand strategy, to advertising, to product design. 

When I’m not at my day job I love hiking in the summers and skiing in the winters, watching hockey (Go Blackhawks), traveling to new destinations, mixing cocktails, cooking fancy meals, and drawing all the places I’ve visited – all with my future wife, Kelsey. Send me a note if you want to chat over coffee or an Old Fashioned!
