The youngest of the 4 boys I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. After obtaining my diploma from Sun Valley High School I was accepted at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. At GMU I studied various aspects of information technology including web design, database, networking, security, and much more. On May 5th, 2012 I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Information Technology with a concentration on network security. I also had the honor of serving a few years on the Volgenau School's Alumni Board.
In 2015 I pivoted my career by enrolling in Postgraduate work in the User Experience Design program at the University of California, San Diego. I then moved from Washington to New York to accept an internship with McGraw Hill Financial. There I worked on several design projects gaining valuable experience within the financial technology sector, particularly around enterprise software design. It was there I also adopted Agile and Scrum methodologies. I used this experience to create what I call an Agile Design Project Framework.
This experience springboarded me to my current position at Detectica. There I am responsible for leading UX/UI design efforts, including but not limited to user research, ideation, wireframes, and prototyping, for the next generation of financial technology software used to identify malicious trader activity within global financial markets. Its some of the most challenging yet the most rewarding work I've done in my career till this point. I wake up every morning and can't wait to arrive at our Soho offices.
My passions include design, photography, sports, and living in Brooklyn, NY. Over the past decade I've had the pleasure to photograph some truly amazing people and events. Below is one of my favorites titled, "Sunset on the Williamsburg Bridge".
