Design

I'm a designer at Murmur.

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 opportunites.

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" and my newsletter has been mentioned in The New York TimesThe New Yorker, and The Today Show.

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.
