I’m a seasoned design and product leader living in Paris, France.

About me

For the past 17 years, I’ve been working at the forefront of digital design.

Currently, I’m the Director of Product Design & Research at Algolia where I run both the Product Design and User Research teams.

Previously, I was in charge of product and brand design as the Design Director at Goldstar. For nearly a decade prior to that, I was the head of Auxiliary Design Company, an NYC-based design agency. I’ve led projects for PepsiCo, CBRE, Maersk, Vornado, Kickboard, and many others.

I tend to spend my free time surfing, playing loud guitars, and doing dad stuff. I occasionally release limited runs of guitar pedals for sale under the brand New Ritual.

About this site

After a long writing hiatus, I wanted to restart a blog that felt like the blogs I used to love. It’s not necessarily about any focused topic (although a few show up regularly). If I do it right, it’ll be a reflection of who I am at the moment–ebbing and flowing with my interests. An online magazine of me.
