Iowan native, California dreamer, now Gold Coasting.

I'm a Mechanical and Civil engineer by trade, but have been working as a designer and developer for the last 8 years.

For 4 of those, I was partner at a web consulting company and did design, web development, mapping projects, and project management. Our clients included city planning and transit agencies such as the Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART), the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), and 511 Contra Costa (511CC), and governments in Indonesia, Angola and Mongolia.

Afterwards, I worked as a designer/developer at early stage startups whose products ranged from community-driven e-commerce to accounting software for restaurants. Each time, I got to learn a new niche market, interact with new user types, and work on solving a range of interesting design problems.

I'm currently looking for a new challenge. If you have an opportunity, I'd love to hear from you :) Email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
