Short story...

From large design systems to intricate VR/AR experiences, each project is different and there are many ways to get from point A to point B. I've worked on diverse teams and served as experience design director, creative director, motion graphics designer, and VR/AR prototyper for the U.S. Air Force, Meta (Facebook's Oculus and Portal divisions), Southwest Airlines, Chipotle, Walgreens, AT&T, Diageo Brands, Hilton, Homeaway, Dell and others. I also co-founded the meditation and movement brand Nimbo Alto. : Director of Experience
