Howdy. I'm Jason, a designer who has live all across the south, but currently lives in Chicago. Moving 14 times by the time I went to UGA gave me an understanding of embracing the unkown. Its a big part of why I love software is its inheritly etheral nature. I'm a design generalist, but I've been working in Whitelabels, Travel, and Incentivization for a few years.

My free time is spread across a few projects like painting, growing a small mushroom farm, hiking, and building an antisocial network.

I like to live in chaos and organize it where necessisary. I think websites should be far more magical. I like that sometimes you can't read things on my site. It's set to the pace I breathe at while meditating.

Designed a 0 → 1 platform for booking/managing flights and their payments. Decreased booking errors by 97.7% (63%{60,80,67,25,30,6,2,2}1.48%), and cart abandonment by 80%

03. Activities @Rocket Travel

Aug/21 – Today

We had an existing product that was viable but not loveable or consistent with our other product offerings, this project was kinda a 0.5 → 1. I delved deep into what the unique problems booking activities had that we could turn into opportunities, using those designs as sepperators from the rest of our platform. The rest of the designs I updated using the design system we were building at the time.
