I'm a husband and dad living in Wichita, Kansas. I'm also a Designer on the Platform Ecosystem team at Discord.
My best work is built on the ability of a team from different functions to come together and work harmoniously as a single unit. No work is done in a vacuum and none of this was singularly "my" work. Just want to put that out there. I stand on the shoulders of every person I've been on a team with over the years and likely, so do you.
I'm a Senior-level IC working closely with cross-functional folks to bring activities to the Discord platform.

First Senior design hire. Working to increase acquisition and retention for our social casual gaming product.
Iterating on the touchless experience
We spent a couple of sprints making it easier for folks to use the touchless sign in feature during the early days of COVID-19 lockdowns.
Multi-day booking & health checks
I Designed concept-car versions of what would later become multi day booking.
Techdegree office hours
My small team was able to move the student win-back needle by offering more obvious and cohesive access to mentorship and group conversation.
