I’m a web designer living in Washington, DC. I’m a Senior Interaction Designer for Mobile at LivingSocial. Others may say I’m an insatiable food enthusiast, wannabe world-traveler, and all-around radical dude.

If we haven’t already met…

I love the Internet. How could I not? Aside from the awesome fact that it puts food on the table and a roof over my head (well technically, a few neighbors and then a roof), it’s an enthralling place to work, with so many amazingly talented people doing undeniably cool things.

My enthusiasm lies in building big things from the ground up. I like to anticipate how a product may evolve over time and account for that in both design and code. It isn’t always easy, but that’s the challenge. That’s the fun. And I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.
