I like to build cool stuff that helps people.

Here's a little bit about what I'm up to.


I've been turned onto the scientific method of designing great experiences. Currently into design thinking, user research and AR/VR UI.

What am I currently interested in?

Data Sciences


If you can make the right assumptions and combine it with the right model, it almost feels like you're predicting the future. I'm really into Python and interactive dashboards.

Composite Photography


I got started with photography, but now I'd like to try my hand at using Photoshop to take my real-life perspectives and distort them into my expression of digital art.
