CREATIVE DIRECTION / PRODUCT STRATEGY / VISUAL DESIGN
PRODUCT DESIGN / INTERACTION DESIGN / PROTOTYPING
I am a multi-disciplinary design director, product designer, design manager, and creative director with an eye for innovation and awesomeness.
Previously I designed wearables, mobile devices, tablets, applications, and future concepts for Intel Labs and several other Intel Product Groups. I also spent time crafting digital health products in an Intel + GE joint venture.
Currently, I am sowing the seeds for the next digital revolution as the Design Director for eBay’s Focused Categories team.
(Whoa, that was a mouthful.)
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 balance between user and business needs. My passion lies in finding that hard-won middle ground, where we address human goals and passions while also helping a company address its goals — these are not mutually exclusive, but it’s a great challenge to solve for both.
As a former New Yorker now living in Portland, OR, I enjoy the Pacific Northwest with my wife and 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.
