My oldest passion is music. I was obsessed with the violin from a young age and blessed to have dedicated parents who nurtured my curiosity. I grew up playing many instruments, composing for orchestras, and generally being the “classical music guy”.
An incredible high school psychology teacher blew my mind and inspired my interest in psychology. It wasn’t until after graduating from Duke with a double major in Music Composition and Psychology and moving to Australia that I discovered UX Design.
After some existential debates about my career, place in the world, yada yada, I made the intense decision to walk away from (my attempts at) composing music as a profession. I took a calculated risk on a 10-week General Assembly UX Design Immersive in Melbourne, and immediately fell in love with the craft. UX design has been my professional life since.
Since the pandemic, I have relocated back stateside to NYC, earned a UX Certification from NN/g, and joined the ranks at Amalgam Rx, where I now work full-time enjoying the controlled chaos of start-up life and cutting my teeth in the colossal world of healthcare.
I specialize in designing products and services tailored to meet different cultural, geographical, and linguistic needs of users around the world
My previous role at isobar was focused on enterprise-level strategy and design for both client-side and server-side optimization tests
The majority of the projects I've designed have involved personalization. At Sportsbet, I was the lead UX designer for the Personalization Team
I have been responsible for the research and design of 15 major projects, for both customer-facing products and services, as well as internal company projects

I have been part of a variety of delivery teams, which have managed front-end features for mobile, tablet, and desktop, as well as back-end services
