I studied painting, traditional printmaking and sculpture. I was also involved in the early computer arts lab, booting Macintosh SE's off floppy disks to run Photoshop v1. I learned creative problem solving skills and an appreciation for craft. These traditional fine arts skills have served me well in my professional design career.
I was fortunate enough to get summer work between semesters, at a software company in Silicon Valley cofounded by my uncle. I later joined that company, Frame Technology, which was eventually acquired by Adobe.
24+ years later, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with a lot of amazing people. I’ve worked on many software, website, enterprise web application and mobile app projects for a diverse set of clients. This includes Adobe, Cloudera, IHS Global Insight, InterSystems, Millennial Media, Monitor Group, Paydiant, PayPal, Pingup, Rational and Unica.
When I’m not doing work stuff, I like to spend time with my wife and children. I also play Mandolin in a band with friends and enjoy martial arts. I grew up and currently live in the Boston/South Shore area and enjoy the New England coastal life. We’ve also lived in California and Oregon #coasthoppers.
