Hello. Ciao. Hola. Bonjour. Olá. Hallo. Hej. Hallå. Aloha. Shalom. Salve. Konnichiwa. Sawubona.

I'm a graphic/product designer, amateur photographer, and wannabe woodworker from NYC.

I’m the Director of Product Design at MakeSpace in New York City, where I'm helping shape the future of on-demand storage. Check out our app.

Bloggin' about design, typography, and minimalism at AisleOne, tweetin' design things on the Twitters, pinnin' pretty images at Pinterest, connectin' with peeps on LinkedIn, and writin' words about product design and process on Medium.

One of my passions is photography, and I mostly shoot with an iPhone 6, but I also love film and sometimes shoot with a Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII, or a Yashica Electro 35 GTN. You can check out my photos at Millimetr, Instagram, and VSCO.

Another passion of mine is woodworking and furniture design, though I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to. I still have a lot to learn, especially about joinery, but so far I've built a bench and media console.

Do you love vintage design books? Well, I do! I've amassed an extensive collection of books and posters, mostly from the 60s. You can see most of it on Flickr.

if you want to say hi.

―past

Before my current role at MakeSpace, I've helped design a group chat experience at GroupMe, led the user interface design teams at Reuters and DirecTV, and before that I lived the agency life at Ogilvy, AKQA, BBDO, Big Spaceship and Draft.

A few years back I created The Grid System, an ever-growing resource on grid systems. Also, I designed a series of posters for an exhibit on Braun products from the 60s. You can purchase the prints here.

I was interviewed by Design Made in Germany. I wrote an article on typography for Smashing Magazine. My work has been published in Grafik Magazine, Eight:48, GQ Italia, Creative Review, and Bastardised by Bunch.
