I currently design WhatsApp. Before that I was the Lead Product Designer on Facebook Groups. I have also worked on a number of other teams at Facebook such as Privacy, Composer and Birthdays.

Before Facebook, I was working at Electric Pulp. While I was there, we built Duo, a macOS web browser for responsive web developers. I got my start in design and development at Wright, an auction house in Chicago.

I’ve also built and released independent apps, MOON, Blind Browser for macOS, and Tao Daily for iOS. MOON has become the most popular moon app in the world as well as won a Webby honoree. Blind was mentioned by Daring Fireball and has become a resource for web developers working in higher resolutions.

In my spare time I make music, play games, and relentlessly scour the internet with my wonderful gemini wife.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to get in touch.
