My design influences range from the Eame's, Herbert Bayer and the Bauhaus, Steve Tolleson, Method, Deiter Rams and Jony Ive among others. I collect many things but my most prized object is a rare edition of the 1953 World Geo-Graphic Atlas by Herbert Bayer. My favorite location in the world is the studio that I designed which sits behind my house surrounded by a wonderful garden. I also maintain a fine art practice when I'm not designing or riding my bike.
Originally trained in painting, after trying several things including editorial illustration I landed in design and worked for many companies and agencies, mostly freelance. After working in e-Learning, designing sales programs and intranets I had the privilage of leading the design for two high profile art museums, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the MFA Boston. Next I was brought on as Design Director for Bio-Rad Laboratories Life Science division to lead the communications team working in all media and platforms including building a video team and a system of sales tool apps for the iPad.
As Interactive Director at Chen Design Associates I led a growing team designing sites for companies and businesses of all sizes including a boutique hotel, UC Press and a large packaging company. Good graphic/visual design and typography were at the core of the studio's practice.
As UX Design Manager then Principal Designer at LogMeIn for their GoTo Suite of Communication and Collaboration products I worked with several teams designing solutions for better live webinars and recordings. We refined the experience around customer video channels and content. I was initially part of the GoToWebinar team as we launched a brand new dashboard experience which involved a new component based design system called Chameleon. I later led the first phases of re-design of Chameleon to be adopted across the GoTo products. In collaboration with product leaders I helped imagine the future of content and event artifacts within the GoTo ecosystem.
