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