About Me

Who are you?

Hello! My name is James. I'm an interaction/UX designer. I've had three amazing internships – two summer internships at award-winning design firms and one extended co-op at NASA – and now I'm working for JetBlue.

What are you looking for?

I'm looking for impactful, cutting edge work with brilliant people who can help me and my career grow.  I'm open to design firms and in-house studios based in New York City.

What are you into?

In my spare time, I like to go swimming, host D&D night with my friends, search for hidden bars and restaurants, learn languages on Pimsleur, and go to electroswing concerts.

Think I might be a good fit for your team?
