Hello world 👋🏻

I'm Mike! For nearly a decade, I've designed and assisted with many large-scale, high-visibility projects for companies across a variety of industries as a user interface, experience, and product designer. I've also had the privilege of hiring, training, and mentoring designers who are just starting their careers.

Outside of work, I’m a dad, a husband, an avid gamer, comic book reader, and occasional pixel artist. I currently live in Winnipeg, Manitoba with my wife Rachel and our son Henry.

I’m currently part of the design team at StreamElements helping content creators of all sizes from all over the world achieve fame and fortune. I previously worked as a UX Designer in the Kindle Design Studio at Amazon, and was the Product Designer on Flocker, a labs project of Bold Commerce, building rewards and retention tools for live streamers on Twitch.

I was one of the original designers at SkipTheDishes, Canada's leading food delivery app, and the first UX/UI Designer at Payworks, which provides payroll software to over 25,000 businesses across Canada.

I began my career at Direct Focus Marketing Communications and was fortunate to work with companies like Nike, Scotiabank, and Sobeys to create print marketing material, promotional landing pages, and more.
