Hey, I'm Brendan

I have over 5 years of UX design and development experience, applying my skills at startups, agencies, and major enterprises. Through design thinking and rapid prototyping, I have helped create user-centered solutions to some of the most complex business problems. My tenacity and entrepreneurial drive mean I'm always ready to take on the next challenge.

On my slice of the web you can learn more about my process, see some past projects, and what I've learned during my career in tech. If you're looking to collaborate on a proejct, grab a coffee, or rebuke some opinions please message me here. I read every email and love connecting with other design enthusiasts. Thanks for stopping by!
