More than you wanted to know
I’m a principal UX and product design strategist with extensive experience leading the cross-functional design of digital consumer products and cloud-based ecosystems at Adobe, Microsoft and Amazon. I've led teams and designed products and experiences for physical environments, cloud services, touch-optimized experiences ( Android, iOS, Windows 8, Fire OS), browsers and desktop commercial software.
I am an adept team leader with a talent for mentoring and developing multi-disciplinary design teams. I’m currently a product design lead for Audible's flagship membership and products.
I have lead strategy and product design initiatives across all aspects of Audible's business including design for in-vehicle/automotive consumption experiences, confidential Amazon products, new product initiatives for k-12 education, member acquisition, e-commerce, retention, and content consumption on all major device platforms and form factors. I engage daily with key business owners across the company and its international subsidiaries, as well as with partners at Amazon, Audible’s parent company.
Raised in the wilds of Suburban Washington D.C., I spent my formative years fighting with my four younger brothers and being instructed in the finer points of Catholic guilt by Jesuit priests. Since then, I’ve managed to work, live or travel to 38 states, eight foreign countries, one semi-sovereign territory and four out of seven continents.
I currently live in New Jersey (long story) with my wife, our three children, and an emotionally distant Labrador named Duke. I’m always on the lookout for new opportunities to work with smart, interesting people that want to change the world.
