Mark



I'm a UX generalist focused on craft and driven by meaningful work. I recently earned a masters in UX Design from MICA in 2021, where I developed my passion towards building considered human connections through visual experiences. 


Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I am a contemporary descendant of the Kalapuya people, and a member of the Confederated Tribes of Grande Ronde, Oregon ︎. I’m a firm believer in connecting creativity across disciplines, forging the social and cultural landscape of shared communities to bring the best solutions.

I recieved my BFA with a focus on printmaking at Cornish College of the Arts and furthered my studies in the arts at SMFA Boston before settling in New York City. Living in NYC and working for small businesses has helped me to understand the importance of considered visual representation within a community and as a New Yorker.

Trained as an artist, I bring a hands on approach to everything I do, and along with a decade of hospitality where I was customer focused, I learned to leave my assumptions at the door. Today, I hope to improve user experience through simple and elegant digital products while incorporating human needs and values.  

︎  Please reach out as I’m excited to explore opportunities!
