おはよう (hellllloooo!) You've stumbled (intentionally?) onto my site. I'm Paul. I love play, and making smiles happen.
Day-to-day, I help fuel people who eat with purpose over at Territory Foods, where I lead product design + make things.
I live in California 🌅💖. I help organize a design meetup called Designer's Hearth in the heart of Silicon Valley. My favorite part is sharing experiences betwixt other designers. We help each other grow.
Sometimes, I write about the things we explore as a design community. Just recently, Brittany (my better half) and I wrote a guide together called Crafting Your UX Portfolio: a weekend guide to getting it done. If you work with screens + digital stuff, I bet you'll dig it.
In the past, I helped build + grow a company called American Parkour. Our mission was (and still is) to promote, teach, and advance the discipline of parkour. I was a professional athlete, sponsored + paid to travel the world, inspiring others to move.
Starting to catch the pattern here? Nutrition, fitness, health... it all runs close to my heart.
I also ran a design studio called Enchant, helping small businesses and startups build authentic companies through software. Nowadays, it's what Brittany and I use to explore our fun projects.
You can find me on Twitter waxing on about things I care about (like design, psychology, startup-y topics, technology, and people. I love people.) For a glimspe into things that make *me* happy, you can catch my Instagram feed here. I guess if you're the type to "Hi, I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn", jam that here.Peruse my design portfolio
Design, psychology, nurturing companies, and other such madness, as it delights oneself.
Making the switch from graphic to UX/UI design
Today I met a graphic designer looking to make the switch to “UI/UX design.” They certainly weren’t the first, nor will they be the last; I found myself answering the same questions I’ve answered in hundreds of previous meet-ups.Keep on reading
