A ceaseless drive to innovate, lead, and help grow the communities, technologies, and design spaces that define our future.
Balancing between what is and what could be is where I most enjoy working. Innovation has never seemed quite so effortless nor boundless.
An artist at heart, I combine my passions for art, technology, and psychology in order to design with consideration to the users of today and the needs of tomorrow.
Front-end Web Design, App Development, Object-Oriented Programming: my creativity extends far beyond the visual and into the worlds of engineering and implementation.
Bridging the worlds of design, business, and development, I pride myself in the ability to effectively lead and communicate not only verbally but visually and technically.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Colin has always been drawn to design, technology, psychology, and leadership. From directing project teams to spearheading forward-thinking design work, Colin finds that his skills and passions are best applied when working with others in fast-paced environments that emphasize rapid thinking, communication, and creative problem solving.
Fresh out of Cornell University – where he received degrees in Information Science (BA) and Fine Arts (BFA) as part of a uniquely designed Concurrent Degree Program - Colin is currently a User Experience Designer at IBM. Based in Austin, TX, Colin is busy crafting next-generation, cognitive experiences for IBM's wide-range of collaborative enterprise solutions, including IBM's signature email service, Verse.
With a blend of hard work, ambition, and boundless passion, Colin looks forward to furthering his career as a designer and leader within the exciting cross-section of design, innovation, and technology. (Alternatively, he would also really enjoy working as Brad Pitt's understudy, but with absolutely zero resemblance this one seems a bit less likely.)
