BACKGROUND


Design Lead for Bluemix at IBM Design. Based in Austin,TX. I’ve worked with companies such as AT&T, Alcatel-Lucent, Polycom, Symantec and Pebble. My experience ranges from mobile to enterprise in both agencies, startups and in-house. I’m a big believer in connecting with and contributing to the larger design community. So, I invest a lot of my time volunteering with AIGA Austin and teaching at Austin Community College.
