Howdy

I’m a digital product designer specializing in screens you can touch.

Currently, I’m Executive Creative Director at Small Planet in Brooklyn, NYC where I lead a talented team of designers in a user-centered design approach to make beautiful products that are both useful and fun to use.

With over 80 apps in the Apple and Google Play app stores, our designers openly collaborate with our in-house development team and producers to build award-winning products using the agile development process.

I believe in the power of pen and paper to solve almost any design problem and strongly encourage our designers to make working prototypes of their concepts early and often.
