Product Designer / Head of Design • 2022 - Present • Rebellion Defense

I wanted to do something impactful and let's be honest, different. My third startup, traditional VC, rocky ride, and very, very hard problems, from both the user and sales sides. I've played a pivotal role in the development and delivery of various features for Nova, a cybersecurity tool, and led the design efforts for new features, including a comprehensive overhaul of the user interface and the enhancement of Mission Management capabilities. I also helped build and refine the discovery process for the Dispatch product, resulting a connected team that had a rich understanding of the challenges the end-users faced and deep empathy for them.

Head of Design • 2021 - 2022 • Logixboard

I led the Product Design team going from 0-1 in the logistics tech sector. Through the first year I helped re-launch the product with a focus on understanding of user problems, definition of problem/solution set, and modern UI and strong usability. The work resulted in Series A funding and booked ARR over $1M in the first 11 months of launching.

In years 2 and 3 through Series B, I moved focus to scaling the team and setting the designers on a path to success, hiring several new members of the design team and implementing processes to foster growth, belonging, and quality design.

Head of Design and Joule Ready • 2013 - 2019 • ChefSteps

I started as the sole designer at ChefSteps—The third person on the software team. Through the first two years I helped create as a vehicle for free and paid cooking content (+1M subscribers and a massive mailing list), then as a hardware/software IoT business (Joule Sous Vide, one of the best-selling on the market), and finally a consumer package good business that was growing at a good rate with customer retention nearing 30% upon my exit.

Our Joule Ready team grew quickly from 2 to 11 in a short 6 months with significant potential and the design team grew to 8 by 2019. ChefSteps was acquired by Breville in 2019.

Another fun project I worked on was Manage Your Kindle. I helped define the system design and developed the interface for a complex content and device management utility. Pro tip: It's accessible through and is super useful for managing all your Kindle Content and Devices.
