Human Experience Designer


Hello! I'm Austin and I have been working on solving real, magical design problems for about six years. An unrelenting storyteller at heart, I am curiously skilled in presenting and creating video concepts. In teams, I am great at inspiring teams with bubbling energy and buoyant optimism. My roles often include:

UX Design, Interaction Design, Service Design, and Design Facilitation

Currently, I'm completing my Masters in Experience Design from Hyper Island. I have worked in gaming, video, and music industries with a variety of clients such as Adidas, Atari, Bob Dylan, BBC, ESRO, National Rail, and ustwo.

Now with that said, allow me to ask:

I bring design methods to understand and shape the entire experience. I paint with time, emotion, and micro-interactions, building into magical and sometimes futurist systems.

After completing my master's thesis at Hyper Island in making chatbots with design thinking methods, I have begun to make my own chatbots and help others. This is all in an effort to understand what role UX can play in designing artificial intelligent and automated systems.
