I am a big fan of user-centric design. I rock paper, pens, Photoshop and InVision to slap designs together.
Passion is important, so I try to stick to things that keep me challenged and growing. I love working with teams of like-minded people, trying my best to pump out awesome products.

I am helping transform The Cline Group into a new entity (currenlty in stealth), a process that involves a complete rebranding and the building of a new website. I help clients, which are primarily SaaS companies and mobile apps, to develop strategies to hit business goals. I also train staff to use various web tools and strategies on a constant basis. I work alongside the PR team to help create holistic marketing strategies for our clients.
August 2013 - December 2014
On a day to day basis, I work as part of two teams of 8 and 5 to optimize the UX and UI of two of our apps (a B2B SaaS application that allows users to build complex forms and manage data, as well a B2B SaaS application that helps organizations manage their application processes for grants, scholarships and awards). Working in a SCRUM/Agile process, my work includes creating mockups, coding in HTML/CSS, along with light coding in JS (Bootstrap and Angular). I do my best to help with social media marketing strategies and branding as well.
