Creating digital experiences is my passion.

I’m a Product Designer at Automattic, the company behind, WooCommerce, and Jetpack. Working from my home office in Richmond, VA, I get to collaborate with over 500 automatticians in 50+ countries to help democratize publishing and keep the web open. Currently I'm focusing on prototyping and implementing user-centered design solutions for

Prior to Automattic, I worked in the higher-ed industry as Lead Web Designer & Training Resource for Royall & Company (now EAB). There I led a group of designers, providing daily creative direction in the creation of direct-marketing campaigns. I also lead the group through weekly training sessions on a wide variety of web-related topics, everything from CSS to marketing strategy to design & creative strategy.

Husband & father first, designer second.

I’m married to a smart, beautiful woman named Teresa. We collaborate everyday on our greatest project, raising our daughters Kyla and Clara. We enjoy playing games, which right now mostly consists of peek-a-boo and Go Fish, but when family and friends visit we are known to break out Catch Phrase, Phase 10, and maybe even Monopoly. Although my wife is not a fan, I’m always seeking a challenger for an intense game of Scrabble.

We live near Richmond, VA. During the warmer months you can likely find us near the James River taking a stroll or dipping our toes in the water.
