Nice to meet you.
I'm currently the director of product design at VICE. Our small team maintains over a dozen of our network's websites, iOS, Android, and TV apps, and a video platform serving daily content from VICELAND, VICE News, and elsewhere.
Before VICE, I worked with two startups. Karma was a company making Internet access affordable and accessible through a simple hotspot controlled through its mobile apps and website. Before that, I helped redesign and rebrand Cover – an iOS and Android app for making dining out easier.
I also spent two years as a staff product designer at Etsy. I led an effort to redesign its web-based seller tools and replace its aging CSS with a living style guide.
I've also worked for Huge's product design team on projects for HBO, American Express, OkCupid, Newsweek, and Twitter.
Aside from work, I love to take photos, shake a healthy number of classic daiquiris, tend to my balcony garden, and continue to wait patiently for a successful Minnesota Timberwolves season. Good inspiration comes from experience. I try to stand often and spend time away from my desk. It helps.
