Always at the intersection of human need, technology, and business.

Hello. I’m a product designer. My interests lie at the intersection of design systems and engineering. I am currently the Director of Design at Catalyze. We build infrastructure and compliance software with the focus of bettering the future of healthcare.

Github Activity



Homebase is a rails app that helps teams collaborate, stay on task and manage events. Homebase was created by the design team at Catalyze.


Designing Stratum


On February 25th 2016 Catalyze officially launched Stratum, our Platform as a Service offering, completely rebuilt from the ground up.

Selected Design Work

A selection of work from 2014 - 2016



  • Product Design
  • UI/UX
  • Rails & Frontend Development

Catalyze is a remote team. We like to get everyone in the same room several times per year. As the company grew we found a need for an application that could pull in various calendars, link documents together, and give a high level overview of events. I worked with the HR team to design and build Homebase to serve this need.



  • Product Design
  • UI/UX
  • Design Direction
  • Frontend Development

Stratum reduces the barrier to entry for digital health companies by making HIPAA compliance as easy as git push. As the Director of Design at Catalyze I spent more than two years leading a team of designers in making Stratum the number one compliance platform as a service.

In 2016 myself and the Catalyze design team worked directly with product and engineering teams to design and deliver Stratum 2.0.0 - 2.2.0



  • Product Design
  • UI/UX
  • Design Direction
  • Rapid Prototyping

Integrating with EHR systems is far more difficult than it should be. Redpoint turns health system integration into an asset for digital health companies. The user interface work I conducted on the Redpoint demo included taking this idea of building integrations and then modeling a user flow around that. The Redpoint UI is the concept of productizing a heavily manual and arduous consulting service.

Redpoint was a project I worked on at Catalyze in the fall of 2015. The intention of the demo was to showcase how developers can instantly instantiate and manage HL7 interface integrations.



  • Art Direction
  • UI/UX
  • Web Development

Catalyze is helping healthcare transition from volume to value-based care. That's no small feat. We firmly believe the future of patient care will be driven by an interoperable infrastructure powered by our core products, Stratum and Redpoint.

The Catalyze marketing website has gone through several iterations in the past three years. The current version is built on our custom Sass styleguide with Kirby powering the CMS.


2014 - 2016

  • Design Direction
  • UI/UX
  • Web Development
  • Documentation Development

Being a compliance company means you're mostly in the business of keeping a digital paper trail. Couple that with a technical product offering and documentation starts to play a very big role in the company.

Throughout my time at Catalyze I've developed and designed a number of documentation systems. Those include marketing landing pages, blogs, compliance documentation portals, and developer API/CLI references.

Engineering Blog


  • UI/UX
  • Web Development

The Catalyze engineering blog is the home for all technical articles. From tutorials on building a compliant docker-based platform as a service to product release notes.

I built the engineering blog using Middleman. Publishing works on a git based workflow with Codeship doing deployments.
