I grew up in my dad's sign shop cutting letters out of vinyl and creating logos on Windows 3.1. Since then, the tech has changed a lot, but my love for good design hasn't. When the time came, I went to Northeastern University where I received a dual degree in Graphic Design and Game Design. I've been working in the tech industry ever since at companies like PayPal & MeYou Health, as well as a few startups along the way. I'm now at Wistia, where I've been working on the Platform team focusing on the designer and developer experience at Wistia and building out VHS - our design system. When I am not working, I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with my wife and my dog Tofu.

Shipped a side project
Designed Mobile Web UI

This sentence has five words.


This was a little idea I had kicking around in my head for a while. You can input a block of text and see how it flows. The app splits up the sentences and categorizes them by syllable length. Hovering over a sentence will also break down and categorize the clauses.

Built UI components
Teaching about design systems

Design System Starter


To help other designers feel more comfortable writing code, or at least have a deeper understanding of how pixels turn into experiences, I created a "VHS Starter." This sandbox allows someone to quickly start using Wistia's design system - VHS.

Built UI components
Added a new design system component

Button Prototype


When I realized that the current buttons in the Wistia design system were limiting the visual design of the product, I started working on a new button system. Instead of jumping into Sketch, I ventured into React to nail down look of the buttons as well as the different props that should be available in them.

I Think You Should Leave Database


When Notion launched its API, I was really eager to find a fun project to explore it. I didn't expect I would dive completely into React, but once I started I kept digging. Along the way I learned about Next.js and server side rendering as well.

Launched a Product Feature

Launched Podcasting in Wistia


2020 was all about podcasts for me! (Ok, there were actually a lot of other things going on, but I am trying to focus on the positive 🙂) Across Wistia, every team was focused on expanding our core competency of video hosting into the audio sphere.

I lead design for the Core Product Experience team for this project, which focused on how users can create, upload, and distribute their podcast.
