Hey, I'm Ryan

Designer, problem solver, and curious about how digital products can cut through noise 🧐

Currently
Digital Product Designer at Masonite
Making a tool called Hatch

I'm a digital product designer interested in building experiences that are logical, thoughtful, and accessible.

I currently reside in Tampa,FL, where I help simplify the home remodeling experience and help build connected, IoT experiences for homeowners at Masonite - a global manufacturer of doors.

Previously, I helped build a problem-solving platform for payments as the first product designer at Chargebacks911.

I’m driven to learn why people do what they do so I can create experiences that are intuitive and successful. I’ve helped rethink, prototype and design solutions to help bring empathy and simplicity into complex problems - which is a fancier way of saying I help things make sense.

If you'd like to see more of what I've been working on, take a look at my CodePen, Dribbble, and Github. For a more in-depth look at my design process or if you have a project in mind, let's chat - I'm available.

What am I listening to?

Here are a few things I've been listening to while I'm doing focused work, driving, walking around, or whatever really...

How can I help?

If you have a dope side project idea or want to trade project/portfolio feedback, I'd love to help out. If you want to chat about design, movies, or anything else, that’s fine too!

If you're in the Tampa Bay area (and even if you're not), I'd love to chat over coffee, tea, seltzer water, coke zero, whatever really ☕️ — let's chat!

I'll do my best to reply quickly 👍.

Currently Learning
  • How to better utilize data and Computational Design Methods
  • Design system architecture with React, Figma, styled components, and content principles
  • How to drive faster than my homies on the go-kart track
  • SwiftUI / Flutter - to help build elegant and intuitive product experiences for mobile/watch/OS
  • How to manage a ton of tabs in my browser, but am ironically an inbox zero person 🤷
Portfolio

Like any designer, my portfolio is really never finished and is in a constant state of having the code reworked. This is the 4th iteration of my portfolio and I put this version together with help from the following resources:

Notion
Figma
React and Gatsby
Styled Components
Ionicons
Inter Font Family
Vercel
Spotify API
Framer Motion
Feedback from many nice humans
