Uber

Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft will bring far-reaching changes to our cities and our lives—quicker daily commutes, less traffic congestion, and cleaner air around the world. Uber Elevate has already started exploring the barriers we’ll need to overcome to make this a reality. Uber partnered with SCAD and tasked us with defining the end-to-end experience for Uber Elevate. We designed the interior experience of the SkyPort™, a modular terminal for Uber Elevate that provides a space for riders to briefly wait and easily find their way to and from their vehicle, as well as vehicle interiors with design limitations in mind. I was responsible for designing the Uber Elevate user experience from request to landing.

Apple

I had the opportunity to intern on the Apple Media Products Production Design team. Here I combed through and created specifications for UIs in various products before sending them off to developers. This experience truly showed me how crucial it is to establish and follow a design system when building a product used by the world.

Seedly

As the population of our world increases over time, so does the demand for food. By 2040, our current food infrastructure won’t be able to produce the appropriate supply to meet the world’s demand. It’s important to educate our youth on agriculture by creating a relationship between plants and the children who plant them.

Spotlight

Spotlight was an attempt to bring upcoming artists together in a community built around collaboration and trust. We wanted to ultimately give artists the tools they need for success, with the idea that they can eventually break through the music industry together without the need of a label. Spotlight was released to the App Store with a few hundred initial users, however it was hard to grow and maintain the product while in college.

Tinker

I wanted a way to efficiently manage my time while in High School, and no apps were doing me justice. My friend Jonah Siegle and I created Tinker, an iOS app that allows you to easily create and complete duration based goals. Peaking at #3 in Top Paid Productivity Apps and featured under Best New Productivity Apps by Apple, we were blown away by the response.
