I currently refer to myself as a human-centered technology designer. I believe in the power of design thinking and doing as a positive force for healthy growth and continuous improvement.
Here are some examples of my recent work.
Making the Appian low-code platform more fluid and delightful for developers and making process mining more accessible to business analysts. (🔒password-protected)
Low-code toolkit of components, layouts, and templates to build working prototypes in the browser with the human-friendliest tech stack around: Markdown for content, USWDS for components, and GitHub Pages for hosting. All free and open-source.
A template for creating web-based presentation slides using the U.S. Web Design System and Bixal branding. Built with accessibility in mind, it includes common templates, automated slide navigation, and presenter notes.
A template for creating a simple “link in bio” site using GitHub Pages, a free and open-source alternative to one-page sites like Linktree.
A customizable form for prototyping a screener experience using the U.S. Web Design System and GitHub Pages. The template can be copied and modified without any installs or local builds.
The easiest way for low-tech people like me to create and host basic web pages for free on GitHub Pages. Just copy the template, turn on publishing, and add your Markdown content to the homepage.

I started my educational journey in music production and engineering and wound my way through web development and instructional design before discovering user experience and product design.
Currently, I’m a Lead UX Designer at Appian, a leader in low-code development and process automation, focusing on improving the low-code developer experience and lowering the barriers to process mining.
I think it’s important for designers to learn about the history of our practice, so I started a podcast called Designer Sketches to profile the lives and work of influential designers of the past century.
Aside from design, these are some other topics I’m interested in:
