New York, NY, USA
I design to improve lives and make humans more efficient. I am inspired by big challenges and difficult problems.

My passions lie creating great products. I want to disrupt and reinvent stale industries. I am always interested in projects that push the boundaries of design and technology.

I practice holistic and cohesive design, utilizing my expertise in interaction, product, information architecture, and experience design. On occasion I code and conduct user research.
