I love solving problems for people.

I have over twenty years of experience producing web sites. I design by understanding users behaviors, attitudes, and emotions.

C. About Me

My personal user journey from college to career.

I.

How I got started in design

My mother is an artist, and I’ve excelled at art since I was five. When I reached college, I chose graphic design as my focus and started to design websites for departments around Oregon State University.

II.

What I’ve been working on

For the last twelve years I've been responsible for designing, building, implementing, and maintaining web applications. Recently, my focus has been creating and managing design systems.

III.

What drives me

Inefficiencies in workflow (I’m a big proponent of design systems), and a desire to learn (that's why I earned the Google UX Design Professional Certificate).

IV.

What I believe in

We are designing for people, not just ourselves. That's why I always try to bring the user into decision-making discussions. Empathizing with people helps you better understand them, and the problems they face when interacting with your product.

F. Author Message

In my free time I am writing the sequel to my first book, The Key of Astrea. I’m also father and teacher to my 7-year-old daughter, and husband to my wife, Natalie Perrin. We live in Eugene, Oregon and make as many trips to the coast, lakes, rivers, and mountains as we can.
