Experience

2016-2022
The Office of Experience
Creative Director

I led design initiatives across brand, product and digital projects. I was fortunate to work with some of the most talented designers, strategists and practitioners in Chicago. Over the course of 6 years, the team grew from 8 to 60, we changed offices once, and went on 4 boat parties.

I was focused on building a team of designers that were well-versed in Product Design tools and process – introduced Figma and Sketch into our workflow and set the foundation for component based design.

While at OX, I redesigned Spectrum Enterprise's web experience, led the creative marketing execution for Tate & Lyle, oversaw the design and UX of Dot Foods B2B E-Commerce platform and made many friends along the way.

2016–2010
