I am a product design leader with 15 years in the industry.

After growing up in New Orleans, and going to college in Philadelphia, I moved to New York City, where I live with my wife, our two children, and a dog named Clark Kent.

I believe in the democratization of access and knowledge that technology can bring to the world. Something that was once artificially scarce and prohibitively expensive can be made available to every person with a screen and an internet connection.


I am currently at Stripe, responsible for leading design across our consumer-facing payments products.

Previously, as VP of Product and Design at Kickstarter, I focused on helping bring creative projects to life. Before that, I was design lead on Google's productivity tools.

In pursuit of an interest in storytelling, I majored in cinematography at Temple University's School of Communication and Design. I moved to New York to follow that dream but realized that I'd spent the last 4 years teaching myself how to design with my nights and weekends, and I had loved every minute of it. The rest is history.


I think life is best lived through experiences. For me, that means traveling and sharing stories through photos and videos. In 2015, I spent 3 months backpacking through South East Asia. In 2017, I spent 6 months driving a 1988 VW Vanagon around America.


I enjoy keeping up with new web technologies, and this site is my playground. The current version is built with Nuxt.js, Tailwind CSS, and hosted on Firebase.
