The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.

about me

Hello! I'm a user experience designer, digital strategist, information architect, and lighting + sound designer from Dallas, TX. I create innovative web applications and multimedia projects in order to help brands spread their mission, vision, and values on a worldwide scale.


I currently work as a User Experience Consultant at Microsoft. In being a founding partner of Trinix Creative, I've been able to take my years of experience and apply them to a multitude of different clients.


I've always been driven to redefine the way people interact with modern media ever since my parents first purchased an Apple II. From there, I developed my skills and became indulged in the world of mass media - constantly seeking ways to express new ideas and concepts.


I have a huge passion for the performing arts (especially musicals + plays such as Wicked, RENT, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Lion King, Hairspray, and Joseph). My main focus is reenvisioning the way that ideas are portrayed especially through the mediums of light, sound, and visual perceptions.


Lastly, I'm an avid activist in areas of environmental protection, human rights, and animal rights (especially whales).
