Experience is everything

I design and lead complex tech stuff for startups and corporates looking to change the game

— guess where this is and win a prize —

I work closely with founders to distill the f-ck out of an idea, crystallize a proposition, and convert complex workflows into intuitive, business-defining experiences.

My work transcends “Product” and “Design” — there’s just no separating this in my head. I couldn’t imagine designing anything without understanding why I’m designing it, and I couldn’t imagine starting anything without determining how it will work.

I get deep in the dirt, think systematically, unravel objectives through efficient design, and lead an arena of invention and change.

Bring. It. On. 👊🏼

LA birthed me and NYC raised me. I’m currently based in London, but my heart is forever chained to NYC 🖤

I get a particularly twisted thrill from building stuff without precedent and hellbent on torching the rulebooks to make things better. Now I’m doing just that— I’m partnered in building something that majorly vibes my nuclei will definitely rock some world. Stay tuned.

I’m available for freelance consulting. Hit me up.

Just please keep in mind—much of what I do isn’t exactly portfolioable (or legally shareable), so anyone immediately asking for a portfolio doesn’t understand what I’m bringing to the table. And besides, I’d usually only share design work over a meeting anyway.

So let’s meet up! Trust me, it’ll be fun 🤙🏼

Questions? Just ask.
