I'm Coby, a designer based in Texas. I'm currently a product designer at Pivotal Labs, where I work with a talented team of developers, designers, and product folk as we teach enterprises and startups how to build amazing software. I've worked for medical systemsstartups, grocery stores, and health companies, among others. While I began my career in the fine arts and photography, I transitioned into product design and development. I received my BS in Interdisciplinary Studies in Art and Technology from Texas A&M University - Commerce. I focused on the effect science fiction has upon science fact within the realm of the arts through documenting the resurgence of virtual reality experiences as contrasted to coverage from decades past in magazines and trade publications.

When I'm not at home working on furniture projects for my wife Valarie or playing with the kids, I can be found at the local IxDA meetup I help run, working on launching a podcast, or helping brand an open source project.
