About Me

Before striking out on my own, I spent several years at Google, first as a design manager in Ads (leading the UX team for DoubleClick for Publishers), and then as the designer for Google Classroom, seeing the project from early concept to launch. Before Google, I designed for Apple (working on the apple.com redesign), The Paperless Post, and Conde Nast and in 2009 led design for the The New York Observer redesign, which garnered a Webby nomination for best newspaper design (aside from The New York Times, it was the only other U.S. newspaper nominated). I’m a graduate of NYU (Master’s, ITP) and Macalester (B.A., Cultural Studies), and currently serve as principal for Studio Simpatico.

Consulting to Large Scale Projects

I regularly consult for companies and subcontract for larger agencies as a UX consultant or WordPress developer. However, if you’re looking to finish a bigger project, I also run a design shop in NYC called Studio Simpatico.
