I am a full-time advisor for early-stage Design teams, with a focus on companies that make software for work and workplace communication. New-school enterprise.
I have a small portfolio of companies that I work with every week, and I'm also an EIR (Exec-in-residence) at Amplify Partners.
I've been a designer for 25+ years. Before I became a full-time advisor, I spent the last 12-or-so years building and leading design organizations for some of the most impactful category-companies of my generation. Loom, Slack, Palantir.
Prior to my focus on systems and platforms for doing better work, I designed oscar-nominated tools for realtime filmmaking, the interfaces of virtual worlds, and lots of good old-fashioned brand and print and web.
