Pipio is an iOS app that will help you recognize a bird call and tell you what bird you are listening to.

New iOS7 Design:

Last year the app had to change because of iOS7 look and feel as well as audio recognition of the bird was too difficult for our small team. After some user research and discussion the app became more about birders sharing their experiences with birds.

Pipio started as “Chirp”, the winner of the Santa Barbara Startup Weekend of June 2012 where I was the lead designer.

The beauty of the app is that it isn’t just recognition. It will help birders save their life lists with a ton of relevant information and connect with other birders with similar bird lists.

The local television news (KEYT) even ran a story on us.

Web and Mobile UI

sRating is a social media website and mobile experience where you and your friends rate places you regularly go. The rating becomes personalized not by strangers but by your friends whose opinion you trust.

I put together a strong visual brand including logo, business cards and homepage design. I also designed many experiences of the user rating places in both web and mobile.

Make It Bigg Logo Make It Bigg UI

Make It Bigg is a mobile application that is easily allows you to discover new bands playing near your location by genre and quick music preview.

I created the logo, application icon and a few mockups of the user interface for the App. I tried really hard for the brand and persona of this app to be distinct and engage the user beyond just cool aesthetics.

With cool features like: Easy and super fast preview of music, Cool sliding picture galleries, interaction with bands through their band pages, etc… to impress on the user that they’re part of the band themselves.

I recently designed a logo/brand and website design for a new start-up, called StickyLeaf. It’s a weekly deal site for cannabis related items.

Sticker and poster/flyer design



The brand is designed to bring the cannabis counter culture into a more respectable “amazon-esque” ecommerce world while still having a witty tongue-in-cheek brand.

Vision Brochure

A few months ago I finished up designing and building a WordPress website for Planet Solar, a Santa Barbara solar panel company. They hired a talented photographer to take quite a few photos of their customers who are very happy that they went with solar power.

I designed a website that would show off the photography. I also designed a 36×27″ folded 9 panel Vision Brochure for them to send out to their customers and partners.
