I design things that work for people.
I’m an experience-focused designer based in Brooklyn, NY. I’m interested in creating physical products and interfaces that embrace the digital world, but I also really like software and the Web. I can write code but I’m not a developer. I understand manufacturing but I’m not an engineer. I pay attention to market forces because the economic constraints around a product are usually more stringent than any others. I focus on people and their needs, habits, and experiences. I try to learn as much as I can to make the best products possible. I also teach, always working on better ways to explain the intersection between physical and digital design.
I studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute and worked as a product designer and engineer before moving digital and getting an MFA in Interaction Design from SVA. My first lines of code were written in Arduino but now I work in whatever technology lets me make the fastest prototype. I do like to play with computer science principles, doing things like coding physics engines or growth algorithms. I built my first website in 2008. Yes, it was terrible.
