All-around cool dude


You can call me Chris. I also go by Product Designer or UX Designer. I specialize in design research, so I suppose you could call me a UX Researcher, too. Whatever you call me, I just want to solve problems and make things that people will enjoy using.

I currently work at USAA in their Austin, TX design studio. I work on the credit and debit card experience. Previously, I worked for IBM Design, helping to make cloud computing better with Bluemix. I love the challenge of working in an area with so much complexity.

Back in the day, I received my Masters in HCI from the University of Michigan School of Information.  I was an Executive Officer in SOCHI, and I helped make World IA Day Ann Arbor happen.

I play tennis, watch football, win trivia, enjoy my music loud, and spend too much time mashing my W, A, S, and D keys. I recently got a GoPro, so I'm working on become more extreme. My favorite word is aplomb.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
