I love solving design problems. Some of my skills include synthesizing user research into insights and ideas. UX/UI design, interaction design, prototyping, email design, illustration, and front-end coding. I enjoy hockey, have an unhealthy obsession with cryptocurrencies, and love mountain biking. I'm also a recovering product manager.

Practice visual design skills by creating a realistic product. In this case, I developed a watch for a "City Collection." The ﬁrst piece in this set is the Dallas watch.
The challenge was not just in creating a realistic-looking watch, but how do you capture an entire city in a single logo?
I did a lot of research trying to piece together the various elements that deﬁne Dallas. It would be relatively easy to make a cowboy, or some western-style object the central theme, but that's not really Dallas. Ask a local Dallas resident where the cowboys are and they'll tell you to go to Fort Worth or AT&T Stadium. No, the watch needed to authentically represent the city. I ﬁnally landed on the pegasus, a frequent symbol seen throughout the city (and perched atop the famous Magnolia Hotel) that harkens back to the Magnolia Oil Co. days and what would eventually become Mobil in 1959. The star references one of the most popular sports teams in the country--the Dallas Cowboys, and the local NHL hockey team the Dallas Stars. It also symbolizes the Lone Star state and Dallas within it. The red, white, and blue colors match the Texas ﬂag and the United States, a slight nod to the great pride Texans take in being Americans. Together, they form a watch that represents the unique side of Dallas paired with the overwhelming sense of pride Texans take in their state and their country.
