Just another designer trying to make the world a better place.

#about

I work with organizations, businesses, and causes striving to make positive change in the world, such as Guideline, The Trevor Project, Color of Change, InReach, and more.

I co-run a design studio, heyjay, and have a newsletter where I lazily write about philosophy.

If you're curious, these are a few of my fay-vor-it things:

tattoos
minimal design
animals
backpacking
vegan food
disc golf
nature
emo music
self-reflection
my cat
my people
kindness
plants
making lists
#work

01. Guideline

Product Designer

Guideline is primarily a 401(k) company with the goal of helping small businesses provide affordable retirement benefits to their employees, helping them to save for retirement.

I sit on the IRA team, which is a new product offering. This means our team gets to move quickly, finding ways to grow our user base and deliver the very best product.

02. The Trevor Project

UX Designer

The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people. I helped reimagine the experience of the counselor speaking to these folks.

03. Formstack

Web Designer & Developer --> Product Designer

Formstack is a workplace productivity solution that helps companies streamline workflows, automate manual tasks and fix broken processes — securely, in the cloud and without code — turning everyday tasks into remarkable results.
