I’m currently looking for a new role.
For the last six years I ran the thirty-ish person design team at Quora, comprising product design, user research, and brand design. My primary focus was product design, spanning strategy, product, UI/UX, and front-end development.
Complex problems demand excellent collaboration. My approach to management emphasizes the culture, people, relationships, processes, and artifacts that precede great design work.
I enjoy research and writing, drawing from a broad range of fields in order to solve design problems and develop new design theory. I’ve written about a number of the concepts we developed while designing Quora.
I would be thrilled to run another design organization, or to manage within one. I’m also interested in going deeper into research and theory, and would love to help other teams develop a design practice appropriate for their challenges. Email or DM me if you'd like to talk.
