I have honed my skills in design over the past eight years exploring web, mobile, and print. All of my creations use this knowledge as a foundation.
Ever since my very early childhood, I have been fascinated by technology. It is what I ponder, discuss, and research every day.
My formal education is in Mechanical Engineering at The Cooper Union. I have a solid background in mechanics, thermodynamics, and system controls.
Cooper is a small school of creators in the heart of Manhattan offering full tuition scholarships to every artist, architect, and engineer that is able to gain admission. It has been my home over the past three years and I am so thankful for everything it stands for.
To Due was my first large public project: An app to create an experience that at the time, was not available in any other app. The app uses iCloud to sync tasks between an iOS app and a companion task-bar based Mac App, allowing tasks to always be a click or tap away no matter what you are doing.
While at The Wall Street Journal I worked on three projects: Lightboard, WSJ Scholar, and WSJ Highlighter. Lightboard is a program that runs on a massive LED board that spans three floors of the office and delivers Twitter performance information to employees at a glance. WSJ Scholar aims at reintroducing a younger generation to the WSJ brand and WSJ Highlighter offers a new interaction with WSJ in which readers can highlight important information and a back end can synthesize the most important parts of the article with no time spent by the initial writer of the article.
My most recent summer was spent at Rent the Runway, a rapidly growing start up in SoHo. During my time there I worked with the Product Team on UX flows and potential animations for an upcoming rebrand.
