Creative Director / Founder
I’m a designer and tech optimist who believes that people and machines are better together. I’m interested in how we can use new technologies to amplify us as humans.
I believe technology can make everyone more creative. I’ve spent the last 3 years as an entrepreneur, founding and growing the augmented reality company Moatboat. Moatboat allows everyday people to become creators of dynamic, immersive worlds in AR and VR, simply by using their voice.
I believe technology can redefine the way we communicate ideas. I was a Principal Designer at Microsoft, running design teams for innovative lab groups. Our projects focused on how technology can transform the way we read, write, and tell stories. These projects redefined modern content in a way that is more multi-sensory, immersive, and participatory than the books and documents of our paper-based past.
I’ve also been an Industrial Designer for Symbol Technologies, Motorola, and Kaleidoscope. These projects explored hardware and software innovations in the fields of data management, shopping, medical care, wellness, and transportation.
I’m based in sunny San Francisco, where you can find me running along the ocean or through the redwoods.
