• Digital Designer
    for Hire

Hello!

My name is Michael and I am a UX designer living in the San Francisco Bay Area with 9 years experience. I am a unicorn (That means I can draw & code).

Strategy

"I love it when a plan comes together"
- Hannibal Smith

I think strategically to define and champion solutions that improve products and processes across the team and company.

I pioneer end-to-end ownership, driving creative projects from inception, through development, implementation, QA, launch, and ongoing support.

Design

"Do or do not; there is no try"
- You know who said that...

I create cutting-edge designs, from concept to execution, across multiple platforms and form factors: web, desktop applications, and mobile devices using modern heuristics and design practices.

I champion and implement user-centered design methodologies across web and mobile platforms.

Teamwork

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
- Helen Keller

I build close relationships with program managers, engineers, user researchers, content strategists, and quality assurance analysts to maintain strong project and team alignment.

I seek input, requirements and iterative feedback from stakeholders across the company to help define creative design solutions, and present these back to the team and organization.
