Just a little bit about my other endeavors.

I have explored different creative disciplines throughout my life. My design career is one of them, but I enjoy many outlets for my creative energy.

Calligraphy, ceramics, drawing, painting, not all of it is here on this page, but I do enjoy different forms of creative expression.

Cycling is another one. Although I learned to ride a bike long ago, I took to cycling in recent years for the benefits to my health and the environment.

Recently I cycled across the US on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, and will continue my cycling adventures across the globe.

Selected Work

  • The Design Review Podcast

    I co-host a UX podcast that was a breath of fresh air in the UX podcasting space. We discussed a wide variety of topics, from UX reviews of new apps to principles of design. We got many positive reviews and grew a significant listener base of designers. We are planning some new episodes, so stay tuned!

  • Ceramics

    I practice ceramics and I like to think I'm not too bad on the wheel, though there's always room to improve. Here are just a handful of the different pieces I've made over the years.

  • Calligraphy

    I am self-taught and learned the basics in university to help me understand typography. It started just as a curiosity. I wanted to know how is was done. I studied old manuscripts and letterforms and tried to replicate the strokes the old masters used for formal writing. I probably could've used some formal classes, but I rely on my drawing skills to help me improve, and I've been practicing ever since!

  • Cycling the Camino de Santiago

    In September 2018 I cycled across Spain with one of my good friends. It was an incredible experience. I have many more photos than just the one here... We traveled over 700 km in 13 days, encountering mixed terrain, and breathtaking coastal views. It was a trip that i'll never forget!

  • Cycling the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

    From July 2019 to September 2019 I cycled from Helena, MT to the Mexico border in Antelope Wells, NM, following the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. I completed it in 65 days, riding ~2100 miles across 5 states. It was an incredible adventure, seeing parts of the country that I've never been to before and camping out in America's wild places.
