I'm Tommy, a UI/UX designer living in the DC metro area. Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed making stuff with my hands. Be it a drawing, the perfect meal, a skateboard ramp, or a new guitar riff, I enjoy making things people can use, appreciate, and be impressed by. Just like we want a dish to be plated and photo worthy, it also needs to serve its function and be delicious. A well thought out design is no different. What initially started as the meticulous crafting of LEGOs at a young age has now transitioned to a career in design and design thinking at scale. What hasn’t changed over the years- my attention to detail.
I obsess over every design component in my solutions and don’t believe in cutting corners. I work to make digital products more intuitive, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. I strive to couple my artistic eye with current technology to produce bleeding edge, interactive, visual content. At the end of the day I love the creative process, the excitement of releasing a solution, and the collaboration that design brings out in those it attracts. This website is more than just a portfolio- it’s my design story.
Illustrator. Hands down. I love adopting new tech and software, but something about drawing clean vectors makes the heart happy.
I’ve been drumming for 14 years, played in a few bands too. Had to hang up the rock star life for a little. Rumor has it I’m still on Spotify…
Climbing. It gets ya active and keeps the hands from getting too comfortable on a computer. Nice to trade in the keyboard for a hangboard.
Sharing a meal is better than sharing a link. Cooking is the most humble form of love and something I look forward to everyday.
This is the core of what I do. Everything is an experience, so why not make it the best? I create solutions that set the standard.
The sweet spot between fashion and function. Combine the digital structure and the visual brand to help the user make a decision.
I focus on the animation, interaction, and navigation to make an interface intuitive and clean. It should be simple and fun.
Everyone has a favorite T-shirt that’s just “them.” Brand is what a user sees before they’ve even interacted with a product. It should be elegant.
