I'm currently working as a product designer at GitHub. I've owned design on GitHub Desktop, GitHub Experiments and some other parts of the product. Before that, I worked at Upstatement and Ronik, led the team at Scout Studio, and graduated from Northeastern University.

I grew up on Long Island, make a lot of self deprecating jokes, and I'm notorious for being average at a thousand hobbies—most recently piano, Monday crossword puzzles, embroidery, and hand lettering.

Take a peek at my resume if you need. Say hey over email, on Twitter, or on LinkedIn. Or don't. That's perfectly okay too.
