There are some who call me … Tim.

I'm the head of UX at Goldstar Events, where I get to help millions of people discover and experience the magic of live entertainment.

I've been designing for the web and apps for more than 10 years now, and still love getting up every day to tackle the new challenges that emerge: evolving audiences, changing technologies or shifting business needs. I'm an interaction designer at heart and am comfortable presenting in the C-suite or wrangling code through CI.

At Goldstar, my work helps members enjoy live entertainment more often; previously it helped educate the public about the heathcare system, or created a forum to give storytellers a voice they didn't know they had. I've also worked on numerous B2B apps.

I am typically swapping hats of manager, individual contributor, and project manager. I've managed several small teams throughout my career at Goldstar, Portland Monthly and Wired News, which has included wrangling consultants and freelancers. I particularly like mentoring my team members, and seeing them grow into new roles that add new capabilites to the team.
