CREATIVE DIRECTION / PRODUCT STRATEGY / VISUAL DESIGN
PRODUCT DESIGN / INTERACTION DESIGN / PROTOTYPING
I am a multi-disciplinary product designer and creative lead with an eye for innovation and awesomeness.
Previously I designed wearables for Intel's New Devices group, mobile devices and applications for Intel's Mobile & Communications, Consumer Client and Software groups, and health products for Intel's and GE's Digital Health Group.
Currently, I am sowing the seeds for the next digital revolution as Principal Design Lead + Manager for eBay’s Vertical Experiences Design Team.
I have worked with some amazing companies (Intel, Nike, GE and eBay to name a few) and that breadth of experience has helped me develop a great sense of balance between user needs and business needs. My passion lies in finding that hard-won middle ground, where we can address human goals and passions while also helping a company make money and address its goals — these do not have to be mutually exclusive, so it’s a worthy challenge to solve for both.
As a former New Yorker now living in Portland, OR, I enjoy the Pacific Northwest with my wife and 3 sons. I speak in pop culture references, I am a terrible cook, and I once played electric guitar on tour with an aging rock band to pay for college.
