I'm a design, UX, and product leader whose work focuses on creating experiences that push the boundaries of how we engage with information, currently as the Head of Design Innovation at Automattic, and previously as Chief Design Officer at Axios and Creative Director of The New York Times R&D Lab. I am also an accomplished writer and public speaker who can skillfully convene conversations amongst diverse groups about the future of design, technology, and UX. My work has been presented internationally in major publications, at conferences, and in galleries and museums.
