Hi, I'm Jared. I'm a User Experience Designer based in Austin. I believe craftsmanship and good collaboration will produce nice experiences for the people who are using your products.

I love animals and I have a dog named Titus. He is a crazy guy and very friendly if you ever meet him. 

Martial arts are an interest for me, and I have practiced a few different forms over the years. I started Muay Thai in college and really enjoyed it. If you know of a good instructor in Austin please let me know.

For hobbies, I collect old movie posters. The most interesting posters are from the 70s or 80s that look like the original version was painted. Shaving products are also very interesting. I plan to take a try at restoring straight razors.

My most recent adventures include a trip to Ireland where I kissed the Blarney Stone and had tea with the President of Ireland.  I spent some time in Austin, Texas at the CHI Conference where I published a paper. I also got to live and work in downtown Chicago for three months. For my next adventure I'm trying to decide between a trip to the Galápagos Islands or a trip to Antarctica.
