Hey there! I’m Chase, a designer and developer based in Chicago, IL specializing in systems thinking, design tooling, and front-end engineering. I spend a lot of time thinking about how the web works.

I hate the internet and I love the internet. I believe that it can and should be a space that respects the creativity, diversity, and well-being of those who occupy it. Like hypertext itself, our culture is defined by the connections we make. I work to design and build tools that serve those who create connections on (and with) the web.

I’m currently working as a founding member of the Design Systems team at Sprout Social. I design and build Seeds, our design system, as well as other tools used by Sprout employees to deliver consistently designed products to our customers. Previously I worked as a mobile designer & iOS developer, creating indie apps in my spare time and building products for enterprise clients at my day job. Check out my portfolio to learn more.

If you’d like to chat, you can drop me a line or find me in a coffee shop on Chicago’s west side ☕️
