Don’t have in-house design expertise, or is your current design team stretched thin? I’ll give you and your team the design support you need to get a fantastic product out the door, set you up with the vision and outline for new features down the line, and lay the foundation for a design system to streamline future work.
Working at the intersection of product strategy and design, helping businesses to craft thoughtful & impactful digital products and services across iOS, Android, voice, & the web.
I’m a full-stack digital product designer, writer, and strategist helping startups, entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking product teams launch new digital products and businesses. I’ve designed products and led teams at agencies in Japan and the U.S., multiple early-stage hardware and software startups, as well as Fortune 500 companies, including Google, Microsoft Research, and Amazon.
I’m not into design with a capital “D.” No one-size-fits-all frameworks or processes, no secret two-week+ long design exercises, no Mad Men-style concept presentations. Let’s work together closely, in real-time, and iterate on the design and user experience for your product, design system, or in building out your in-house design practice.

If we're building a new feature, he carefully considers every possible design option and lays out the pros and cons. One of the best designers I've worked with at Google."
