I'm a product designer & UX engineer, currently at New Visions for Public Schools where I design, test and prototype new features for our expanding network of schools in New York, and manage, build and maintain the design system and component library for the school facing data portal.
I'm at the intersection of Design & Engineering—my education in Systems Design Engineering allows me to approach problems from a holistic perspective, design a complete solution, and execute that solution effectively.
When I'm not making software, I enjoy writing, arranging, and playing music. I'm currently tenor section leader in The SymphoNYChorus, and in April 2017 I had the amazing opportunity to sing at the Beacon Theatre in New York with the Water Boys for the ICCA finals.

The UX trade-off of Face ID
The great simplicity of Face ID comes when unlocking iPhone X every day, every time you use it. No more fumbling with the (now extinct) Home button to get in, just lift and look to unlock — that’s…
