About Me

I am a programmer gone UX designer whose love for learning is surpassed only by his love for teaching. I aim to use my skills in research, programming, and design to create experiences that educate, broaden perspectives, and create new opportunities for others in the way that technology has for me.

As an alumnus of the Levine Scholars Program at UNC Charlotte and MHCI-Portugal Program at Carnegie-Mellon I have a strong sense of civic duty and an international perspective afforded by opportunities for meaningful community service work and study abroad experiences.

When Iā€™m not working, you might find me making music, proselytizing for open source, or competing in tournaments for a 15 year old video game.


I'm currently looking for a UX Design position, so feel free to message me about that or anything else you'd like to talk about, including but not limited to: the lack of Third Places in American suburbs, juggling up to four balls, video games as sports, the role of renewable energy in a modernizing electrical grid, or fantasy football as an act of futility. šŸ‘ šŸ‘ šŸ‘
