I love simple design & high performance teams


I’m a Senior Product & Design Leader who’s built & managed teams at LinkedIn, Yahoo!, and eBay.  The consumer products my teams' build are used by hundreds of millions of people.

At LinkedIn I led the Mobile UX team.  Later I was the Group Design Manager for the Core Products team (Profile, Search, and Growth). I believe great products start with a thesis, touch people emotionally, and are validated with data. I care about advancing the art of product design. 

Prior to LinkedIn I was the Design Director for Yahoo! Search where I lead a team of 15 designers & prototypers who were responsible for the holistic search experience. Before Yahoo! I was a lead designer at eBay. I was also a  founding Director of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and an alumni of the Human Computer Interaction program at Carnegie Mellon.
