I’m a Product Designer spending the majority of my time growing a team. We help shape the future of commerce & entrepreneurship at Shopify.


Twitter–my main cheese
Instagram–travel diary
Dribbble–design experiments

Mostly in my head

I’m a hobbyist writer who writes about Design, the tech industry, surviving life as a creative professional, and my place as a Designer in the world.
