I am a product builder, brand designer, and company founder. In 2012, I co-founded Oyster (now a part of Google) where we launched the first Netflix-for-books service, delivering unlimited access to more than 1 million books for less than $10 a month. Oyster's design led the way in mobile reading, ebook accessibility, and screen adaptive technologies. In late 2015, Google bought Oyster to lead books products and businesses. At Google, I lead a team of designers, engineers, and writers building products for billions of users worldwide.
In addition to my role at Google, I actively advise and invest in mission-driven technology companies and am an advisor to Designer Fund. I also manage a naming practice and resource site called Onym.
Previously, I was a lead product designer at Google Maps, and a designer at IDEO and Apple. I studied graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design.
