In life, there are some things you have to do, some things you like to do, and some things you can’t help but do. For me, design is something I can’t help but do. I received a degree in Sociology from Brigham Young University, where I met and married my wife Brooke. Next, I conquered grad school earning my Masters of Public Administration from the University of Utah. We moved to Kansas City hoping to land an internship with the local government and launch my career as a city planner, or something like that. I thank God it didn’t work out. Instead, I became the sixth designer on the interaction design team at Cerner, where I discovered what a perfect fit user experience design was for me. We moved back to Utah to take a job with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leading their design efforts for iOS and Android. Their flagship app, Gospel Library, grew to over three million monthly active users across both platforms. Along the way, we adopted three delightful children. The five of us recently embarked on our next adventure by moving to south Dallas in November of 2017. I now design at TaxAct and am engaged in trying to reduce the anxiety and headache of filing taxes. I have four passions: 1) family, 2) baseball, 3) design, and 4) pizza.
