Design

I'm currently a designer at a pre-launch startup 🤫

I've been a product designer for ~8 years.
I love helping companies go from 0-to-1 and then figure out what's next.
I've spent my career working at small- to medium-sized startups as one of the first few product designers (if not the only designer).

I'm not currently seeking any design opportunities, but I am open to speaking and teaching gigs.

Writing

I’m currently writing a book about tech culture and burnout.
You can check it out and sign up for updates here.

Sometimes, I also write about design and learning science on my blog.

Architecture & Interior Design

I write a real estate newsletter that features architecturally interesting homes for sale.
I have been featured by Substack as one "of the most interesting independent writers on Substack."

I document renovating my mid-century modern home in Oakland, CA here.

I’m also pursuing an associate degree in Interior Design and a real estate license.
