Research, Ideate, Prototype, Test, Iterate.
My design process is user-centric with a focus on data-informed design and wicked-fast prototyping. This gets my products to launch faster and with an emphasis on continual improvement.

Summary: Santa Clara looked to celebrate its new commitment to the arts with a bold landing page. We delivered a gorgeous, mobile-friendly page on a limited budget.

Santa Clara University Digital Toolkit
Summary: After SCU’s move to a redesigned website, the design and development teams needed some tools to help support continuous improvement. The toolkit was designed to provide a UI pattern library and brand/aesthetic guidelines while automatically deploying front-end assets to the web. For developers, it served as a fast prototyping mechanism in which designs could be tested in HTML/CSS.
The toolkit follows Atomic Design principles by breaking UI elements into individual content types. Those content types are then used with layouts to create new designs or prototypes.
Technology: The toolkit is powered by Fabricator with Gulp handling the automated build/deployment of the toolkit. Written in Node.
Summary: Developed IssueHQ, a responsive web application for ticket triage using Material design and Meteor (Node.js/HTML/CSS).
