As a child, I drew on whatever surface I could take with me, memorized whatever Led Zeppelin songs my dad had on repeat, and saved money only for video games. As an adult, I still do most of the above – just add "UI/UX designer" to the end of it all.
In 2010, I received my BFA in Digital Arts (with an emphasis in Game Design) from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Ever since, I've been making elegant user interfaces and experiences for digital audiences, and am now bringing my talents to the video games industry at thatgamecompany. My work and love for music have crossed paths, too, from starting my career on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's first mobile app to more recently at The Cleveland Orchestra, where I led design on their growing digital ecosystem. As a musician myself, I helped co-found The Commonwealth in the late 2000's.
Thanks to my garden, though, I have a hard time staying inside once it's spring. From my basement I've sown dill, basil, parsley, tomatoes (as pictured), peppers, strawberries, cucumbers, carrots, and even garlic. Preparing for it each winter, I'm reminded that time is for spending – and that what is nurtured will grow.
