My strengths lie in product development, design & prototyping. My combination of design and technical skills mean that I can bridge the gap between user experience design and implementation of the actual product. This allows for rapid iteration on fit and features.
I founded Fluent, a startup whose innovative take on the future of email garnered much public & media attention, particularly for its beautiful interface and focus on simplifying the essential aspects of dealing with your emails.
I was lead designer on Google's Wave project, where we broke new ground in the collaborative communication space. Prior to that, I ran my own design company and wrote & spoke about design & web technologies around the world.
I look for companies that value design and give real value to their users. Life-changing and world-changing products that make a difference.
