I’ve been making digital things since 2001.
I’ve prototyped and built patented interfaces for Apple and Beats By Dre, developed the Nike+ FuelBand experience, co-founded a connected hardware company, and collaborated with some of the industry’s most talented people.
I love working with capable teams of engineers and designers and find crafting an elegant product incredibly rewarding. I have in-depth knowledge of mobile platforms, especially iOS, but have a general passion for all technology and love tinkering, playing, and prototyping with anything that comes to hand.
Coming from a traditional design background, with a design career history spanning award-winning digital design, moving image, and animation, I feel at one working with a strong design team to sweat the details of a product.
