Originally from Austin, Texas, I spent time immersed in the fields of architectural engineering and architecture while studying at the University of Texas at Austin. I later went on to receive my MFA in Design from Boston University. During this program I began an ongoing body of self-initiated design research focused on behavorial science, psychology and sustainability in the context of design. 

Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, I create systems at the intersection of visual identity, UX/UI and accessibility. Always utilizing an interrogative process, I look to create meaningful discourse through research-intensive multidisciplinary collaboration.

A good portion of my time outside of design is taken up by ultra-endurance cycling. I have previously completed a 4,600 mile cycling route from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska as a part of the nonprofit Texas 4000. In 2022 I will be completing a 3,200 mile cycling route along the western coast of North America from Mexico to Canada.
