Design consumes my life from my day to day responsibilities as an interactive designer creating user centered desktop and mobile experiences to deciding where to shop by judging businesses by the typeface they use in their logo.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Design with a degree in Graphic Design. I focused on print design but had a passion for interactive. I've been working as an Interactive Designer for an online university creating interactive course material for Masters and PhD learners since 2008. I'm integral to the entire process from wire framing and mock-ups of the UI, organizing information architecture of the content, to front end development–writing HTML, CSS, and jQuery. I collaborate with clients and developers to deliver the best experience possible for the client's users.

All modern technology aside, I have a deep respect and passion for old processes and doing things the 'slow' way. I'm obsessed with letterpress (I actually own a very small press and a few sets of lead type). I love to screen print. I like to develop and process black and white photographic film manually and develop the images by hand. Call me crazy but without understanding and appreciating the tradition and the history you can't really know the present technologies and processes. At the very least you develop a deep respect for how things use to be created and the quality that was produced. Read Less
