Nice to meet you.

Most recently, I worked alongside Alan Dickinson to make Internet access affordable and accessible at Karma – a company offering a simple wireless hotspot controlled through its mobile apps and website.

Before Karma, Kim Bost and I rebranded and redesigned Cover – an iOS app for making dining out easier.

I spent two years as a staff product designer at Etsy. I helped redesign its web-based seller tools and led an effort to replace 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 around New York City and abroad, shake a healthy number of classic daiquiris, 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.
