I am a product, brand, and company builder. 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 pioneered design advancements in mobile reading, ebook accessibility, and screen adaptive technologies. In late 2015, Google bought Oyster to lead the company's book offering.
Today, in addition to my role at Google, I actively advise and invest in mission-driven technology companies and am an advisor to Designer Fund.
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.
