Hello

I am an Seattle based Interaction Designer with a background in Industrial Design. 

I have a passion for working on complex design problems, quickly testing my design hypotheses with subject matter experts and emerging experiences in the digital world. I strive to create fitting design solutions supported by thorough investigation.

I prefer to work in a strong team environment and see myself as a "Mick Taylor" type of team member who will stop at nothing short of perfection.

Working with me...

"I worked directly with Dan for nearly 3 years, creating a first of its kind health product. In a space where there were no existing best practices to draw on, Dan defined and then created entirely new and unique experiences. He is able to sit down with the development team and work hand in hand creating user experiences that are groundbreaking, best of class, and incredibly easy to use.

In the years since I worked with Dan, I have yet to come across another designer of the same caliber. Dan is not only full of ideas, but those ideas are fully fleshed out, take into account real world concerns, and he is able to work across teams to execute on those ideas and bring them to market."
