Microsoft Surface

While at R/GA I was an art director and designer for the website launch of the Microsoft Surface. This project included the landing page, down to the accessories store, and even online advertisements.

DARPA - Plan X

While at frog design, I was the lead designer on the DARPA - Plan X project v1. While I can't show much, I have included an early mood board I created that we based the look of the final project on. Here is an article from Wired about the project.

Telstra Mobile Shop

I spent six months as one of the lead designers on the Telstra Mobile Shop. While the initial experience has changed a bit over the years – the shopping cart and check out experience that I designed are still being used. Scroll down and click 'Buy Now' to check it out

Polk Audio

At frog I had the opportunity to work on branding project for Polk Audio. I created the Polk logo and also made the initial collateral that would be the catalyst for the more comprehensive rebrand.

Club Penguin

One of my favorite projects while working at frog was working on a friends list experience that was consistent across all disney online gaming properties. The screen above is from the late Club Penguin.


I touched on a lot of Disney projects while at frog, mostly around the Magic Band ecosystem. This is a screen from the home page of a booking process. While you are at it - why not book a trip to Disney World. :)

Open TV

This was an experimental TV browsing experience that was partnered with a tablet companion. I had a lot of fun working on this and I still believe that the television and the content that lives on it still has a lot of opportunity for creative exploration.

TV Chatter

This was an internal app built at frog that integrated twitter into content browsing in a TV experience. The idea was that you could engage with the communities of the shows that you loved all on your TV...but SPOILERS!
Thanks for taking a look!
