Hey, I'm Kyle!

Born and raised in the Portland area, I have a passion for UX and interactive design. I believe in design functioning beyond aesthetics, and to have thoughtful beyond every decision made. These days if you don’t catch me at my at my computer, I am either at a concert or exploring the city on a sunny day.

As a designer, some of my major influences include Aaron Draplin, Swiss Design, Material Design, and music festival branding.
