I make things and dream of the future

 

about

I am designer and strategist dedicated to a human-centered approach. I am particularly passionate about how design can lead to truly relevant and compelling solutions that improve and enrich people’s lives. I recently moved back to New York after spending four years in London helping Doblin & Deloitte build an EMEA innovation practice. Currently in New York, I'm working with Casper, the high-growth startup to re-invent sleep. My cumulative career has transformed me from a product focused industrial designer to a big-thinking designer and strategist, using design as an approach to solving the most pressing business challenges for the world’s leading organizations.

Beyond my work, I love traveling the world—immersing into exciting and stimulating environments with my wife and our long-haired chihuahua. I'm also a huge track and field enthusiast. In my previous life, I was a world-ranked jumper and have maintained an affinity for the sport ever since.

project experience

Alongside the collaborative teams that I've been a part of,  I've designed and launched dozens of new products, services, and customer experiences that are deeply relevant to the end user and profitable for the business. To name a few, I've helped bring financial inclusion to people at the base of the pyramid in Sub-Saharan Africa, helped rural farmers in India gain access to scale through a tractor sharing app, and helped a baby retailer capture the secondary market with a new service business. And now, I'm thrilled to be part of the Casper team to build an exciting array of new products, services, digital experiences, and business models to re-invent sleep. 

Above all, I enjoy working with talented people to create a positive impact in the world.

Travels


My project work has led me all over the globe to the US, Europe, India, China, and Africa. These experiences have played a significant role in expanding my worldview and embedded a deep empathy for people of all backgrounds and cultures.
