Hello Waving hand emoji

Hi again


I'm Chris (and that cutie is Jäger), I'm a product designer living in California. I started designing when I was 14, creating custom overlays for Myspace. Remember them?

While in school I became intrigued with human behavior, so I studied Psychology and Human Computer Interaction. My junior year, I was selected to represent my school in a year long HCI research programme in England.

Fast forward to today, where I have been designing for the masses at companies such as eBay, Yahoo and Meta. I truly love creating things that people love to use.

When I'm not nerding out on design, some of my passions include: volunteering, auto racing, DJing, music production, baseball, traveling and photography.

What I love to work on


Strategy & Direction

Defining the problem, identifying the scope and finally, organizing the design roadmap to bring out 100% of every project.

User in love

User Experience / Interaction Design

No furrowed brows. I design and build products users absolutely love to use! From storyboarding, prototyping, information architecture and everything in between.

Paint palette

Visual Design / Brand Identity

I can do everything from the graphic design of logos and brochures to entire product design systems. With an eye for aesthetics but also for accessibility.


Native App Design

We are in the mobile age. People are always on the go and have a computer in their pocket. Stand out with your own app.

User research

User Research

With a background in psychology, research is in my blood. I am always trying to understand the user and can run test sessions

"Capable of taking a product from conceptual thinking all the way to deployment"

Chris is capable of taking a product from conceptual thinking all the way to deployment. This includes brainstorming, wireframing, mocking up, UI, user testing and making iterations, to deploying and monitoring. He understands and embraces project limitations such as time, tech debt, and scope. Chris is also a great colleague and capable in providing feedback on other design projects. His impact is already missed.

"Excellent UX/UI designer"

Chris is an excellent UX/UI designer that I had the pleasure to work with. He  understands what it takes to design an effective user experience as I witnessed during a round of focus group testing where the respondents overwhelmingly had a favorable impression of the FreshFeed mobile app design and user interface. Chris would make a great addition to any organization and I would work again with Chris in a heartbeat!
