I am designer in San Francisco who enjoys designing products that help people live more fulfilling productive lives. I'm self taught, and I do what I do because I can't imagine doing anything else.
Outside of being a Product Designer at Yelp I am also a photographer, a husband to an amazing wife, and a follower of Jesus Christ.
I am a self taught designer, originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I've always wanted to help people live better lives I just didn't always know how. After spending a few years in nursing I realized that I would rather be helping people through design.
I worked for several years for publishing companies and newspapers before I knew I wanted more. I wanted something with more tangible lasting impact.
I moved to San Francisco in 2013 to work for a startup that was acquired by Expedia called Mobiata which specialized in travel apps. After 3 years at Expedia I decided I wanted to tackle new problems at Yelp where I’ve been working on Reservations helping people make plans to eat at great places!
Oh and I like to relax by taking photos around the Bay Area.
I think there's something I can learn from everyone I meet, hopefully I'll get a chance to learn from you!
