SOME NON-NDA GOODNESS

This is a collection of real projects, from personal to client-facing.

Over the course of my career, I've had the incredible opportunity to design products for such companies as Disney, Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, Humana, Harvard, Louisville Slugger and more. Sadly, pretty much all of that stuff must be hidden from view, thanks to the power of the NDA. That's okay, though! I've included a collection of personal and client projects that I've worked on over the last 5 years. Check out the project's details for links to its prototype or live site.

SafeAgent   |   www.safe-agent.com

UI / LEAN UX / CONTENT PLANNING / USER RESEARCH / PROTOTYPING / HTML & SCSS

Hundreds of real estate agents a year are kidnapped or killed while showing a home to a stranger. Historically, the real estate industry has not asked agents to require background checks or screenings from their clients, and there are precious few apps on the market to supplement this gap. I had the opportunity to work with a Louisville-based serial entrepreneur, and two developers to create an IOS app that addresses this problem.    

A real estate agent could run sexual, criminal, and credit reports on potential buyers by scanning the barcode on the back of the client's driver's license. SafeAgent immediately shows the results and offers location-based safety precautions to the agent's friends and family. 

The app is finished with production, and currently being fought over for acquisition by several of the most recognizable names in American real estate.

UI / UX / USER RESEARCH / USER TESTING / PROTOTYPING / SWIFT DEVELOPMENT / HTML & SCSS

This is a personal project and probably the piece of work that I'm most proud of. I've attempted to learn Objective-C and Swift programming several times in the past, but life always got in the way. That was, at least, until I worked with the incredibly talented Chris Gleim on SafeAgent. Chris and I kicked off an immediate friendship over coffee and a mutual respect for the written word. We both felt the same pain points of having far too many books, and not having an easy way to catalog and manage them all. Goodreads and other such applications already exist but are full of usability flaws. We saw an opportunity to create something new that addresses the specific needs of people like us.

Titles is an app for bibliophiles. We can't wait to share it. The first version will be available in the fall or winter of this year.

Feedz

UI / LEAN UX / USER RESEARCH / PROTOTYPING / SPRINT PLANING & AGILE DEVELOPMENT  

For a short time in 2015, I co-founded a startup with my dear friend and forever illustrious entrepreneur Preston Bates. Feedz was a real-time news aggregator built on machine learning. We used a complicated set of algorithms to weigh the likelihood of honesty (or truth, as many of our test audience called it instead) that was shared not only through the platform but also through social media and news channels. The goal was to create a tool that could be used to quickly prove the validity of real-world content in an unbiased manner. Our greater goal was to decentralize information through the use of blockchain technology, creating a simple way for quantifiably true news to be shared to the internet from anywhere in the world.

I led the design of the product, and the rest of the team was made up of a machine learning company in Palo Alto, a development shop in Austin, and a SCRUM master in San Mateo. Our preliminary funding ran out before we could get the product off the ground, and Preston struggled to capture the attention of investors in the valley without a functioning beta. Sadly, after months of trying, we shuttered the project and returned to our day jobs. Still, this project will go down as one of the most interesting things I've ever worked on. ?

UI / PROTOTYPING   

This IOS design project hit my desk on the first week that I joined OOHology — my current place of employment. Watchflippers is a brand new startup that's focused on connecting the luxury watch community through a curated online platform. Interested parties must apply for membership, but once you're in, you get to talk shop with some of the recognizable watch collectors in the world.

The UI of this application feels dark and luxurious, placing the driving focus on the user-generated photos and banter. This app is in the final client review process right now, and will be in the app store shortly. If you like luxury watches, keep an eye out! This is a shockingly active community!

Nant Health

While at Mad*Pow, I worked with Nant Health in Boston to create an iPad app for medical professionals that helps them to be more efficient in their patient management and communications.

Abe  |   www.abe.ai

UI / WRITING / BRANDING / ILLUSTRATION / HTML & SCSS

ABE IS A SLACKBOT FOR YOUR MONEY.

The team behind SafeAgent is building an AI-driven finance bot that lives in Slack. Once you connect your accounts to Abe, he'll be able to learn about your billing, saving, investing, and spending habits, and over time become comfortable enough to deliver specific and personalized ways for you to get more out of your money. From new budgeting techniques to reallocating money for smarter investing, Abe takes the guesswork off of your shoulders. 

I created all of the branding, illustration, iconography, and design for the landing page, slack integration, and user dashboard.  

And that's not all! 

These are two pieces that I did while working as a Visual Designer at Mad*Pow. The first piece is a sampling of a redesign that we created for Fidelity's website, and the second is a screenshot from a server maintenance application that we designed and built for Cisco.
