I make things and dream of the future

 

about

I am a London-based 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. Originally from New York, 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. 

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

A few clients that I've worked with over the years:


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. 


speaking

Over the last several years, I've had the opportunity to speak at various design conferences and participated in panels such as the Product Design Innovation Conference in London, Thinking Creatively Conference in New York, and a range of Industrial Designers Society of America events in New York.
