I'm currently designing products at Wealthsimple, based in Toronto.

I'm a product designer currently living in Toronto, Canada working at Wealthsimple. Prior to that, I joined Uber on the Money design team in Amsterdam working on payments experiences for our drivers around the world. In 2019 I relocated to Toronto to join the Uber Eats team working on our merchant experiences. I'm now working at Wealthsimple.

During my time at Uber I started a YouTube channel to teach product design and user research to the next generation of designers. My videos have had over 800K views and I'm humbled to be able to help these designers grow.

When I'm not behind a screen, I'm out hiking.
Before Uber I was working at Atomic, a small startup working on building the next prototyping tool. It was during this time that I also started the Design Life Podcast with my friend Charli Prangley. It's a show about design and side projects for motivated creators.

The best way to keep up with what i'm up to is to follow me on Twitter. If you're interested in my design teaching I recommend subscribing on YouTube or following me on Instagram.
