Design lead, educator and mentor.

I'm currently leading the Members team at Gusto while living on Vancouver Island in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Prior to that I was at Wealthsimple and Uber as well as Uber Eats.

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 1 million views and I'm humbled to be able to help these designers grow.

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.
