About me

I am a creative who is excited about design strategy, processes and practice. It is my mission to discover and tell the stories about people and events from their perspective of an experience.

Being able to properly tell a story - to communicate complex ideas or actions that are part of an experience, makes it possible to unveil problems and opportunities for better design solutions for those experiences. Storytelling will allow us to paint the picture of existing products and services, or create our vision for a new concept.

Application Programmer Analyst III at Adams County Government

Rodney's skillset in the user experience arena is remarkable. During our time as colleagues he shifted the culture by implementing style guides, creating a practice for mock-ups first, and reinforcing that good design allows for great collaboration between front and middleware.  Rodney demonstrated skillset strengths in the areas of strategic vision, communication, collaboration and execution. I believe the skillset that Rodney possess position him well to adapt to any team looking to improve their user experience.
