In 2016, my family and I left San Diego and transplated to New Zealand. Read about our adventure.
My entrepreneurial spirit pushes me to constantly lead and pursue new ideas. I absolutely love leading my team in new endeavors with tools or skill sets, preparing talks for inspiration, and being a part of the ever-growing design community.
My passion and energy consistently pushes seeds of ideas and problems into marketable products and solutions. For this reason, I partner in various business ventures.
Empathetic, data-informed thinking fuels my efforts when designing and user-testing products. My process includes sketching, whiteboarding, Keynote, Axure, InVision and more.
When a client requests a new website or app, I often ask, ”What if the answer to your problem isn’t digital?” The core of experience design looks at users empathetically, to discover the best solutions, digital or not. This is truly the future of UX design.
My background as a systematic Graphic Designer empowers me to not just convey great ideas, but take them all the way through to development. From UI to marketing to print to branding, I’ve done it all.
Conveying ideas isn’t always static. In fact, it’s often a dynamic experience when communicating flows, interaction, and animations. To do this, I use InVision, Principle, Pixate, After Effects and more.
I’m Cody. I have humble beginnings on the small island of Kaua’i and now find myself in New Zealand. I'm a husband, dad, surfer, gamer & adventurer. I'm often defined as "The Entrepreneur" and desire a keen sense of ownership in everything I do.
I am an established interactive and print designer, focusing on user experience and product design. My passion is experience design, or Human-Centered Design.
