I'm a visual designer in San Francisco – currently working with Google in Mountain View.
Since 2014, I’ve been running my own design studio. My core work is creating branded product experiences for billions of people. I’m happy working with clients like Apple, Facebook, Twitter & OpenTable.
From 2011-2012, I was building about.me from scratch with wonderful humans. Then, I joined agency life at Smart Design. For two years there, I was conducting research & designing products for clients like Samsung & HP.
Somewhere in the middle, I was co-leading a design education company called The Secret Handshake. From 2013-2015, I was organizing sold-out conferences for 200+ design students. We hired diverse speakers from all backgrounds to share their life experiences. The conferences were hosted in San Francisco, Chicago & New York, respectively.
At this point, my portfolio is pretty out of date. With that being said, here's the book I made last year :)
Wanna talk shop? I’m pretty busy right now & open to reading notes from smart folks doing good things.
BRB, building the future!
