I love making things and making things work better. I am a designer, entrepreneur and digital delivery expert. My clients include Intel, United, American Express Publishing, Capitol Records, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Columbia University, Condé Nast, Hearst Corporation, A Diamond is Forever, Microsoft, NYC & Co, Pitney Bowes, Reuters, Sferra Linens, Time Inc., The Travel Channel, and 1800Flowers.
Currently, I work for Bridgewater Associates, the quintessential hedge fund. My role is to drive innovation across research products. I identify user needs and patterns across different products, and then shape them into (hopefully) better and simpler patterns that can be woven back across the entire suite of products.
Previously, I served as the Director of User Experience for McGarryBowen (ad agency), Creative Director for Hudson Union (interactive design studio) and Director of Experience Design at ZEFER (UX-focused web consulting). I worked with the Advanced Reading Technologies Group at Microsoft helping devise interactive advertising prototypes for tablet-based periodicals.
In a previous life, I co-founded Undergroundfilm, a broadband film syndication company, and served as General Manager of Pop.com, an online entertainment platform that was a joint venture of DreamWorks SKG, Imagine Entertainment and Vulcan Ventures.
I’ve taught courses on digital publishing and mobile UX at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and the Pratt Institute. I hold a BFA from Tulane University, graduated from Boston Latin and live in New York City with 2 terrific kids.
