Product Design | ✓ UX/UI Design | ✓ Look & Feel | ✓ Branding | ✓ Copywriting | ✓ Front End Dev
The following list details companies that I worked at for longer periods of time and excludes the many small- to mid-size projects I worked on during and between larger projects.
June 2013 – Present (1 year 9 months)
FlexMinder aims to make the health care industry more transparent, and make it easier to understand and manage your health care spending. This is the first project I’ve worked on where I really feel like I’m making a difference in the world, and meanwhile I get to wear all of the hats with a focus on UX/UI, branding and more copywriting than I’ve ever done before.
January 2012 – May 2013 (1 year 5 months)
This is the first project where I was given total creative control and I directed successful overhauls of both Nearlyweds.com and OneWed.com, pushing OneWed past Martha Stewart Weddings as the 5th most trafficked wedding website. Unlike most startups I’ve worked for, this one is still going strong.
May 2010 – December 2011 (1 year 8 months)
I worked primarily as a UI/UX designer and front end dev on an amazing team which gave me many opportunities to make valuable contributions to product design, branding and copywriting. I’m also proud to say I invented the Facebook Timeline just months before it was released.
Ameritocracy (which inspired ReadrBoard)
April 2008 – April 2010 (2 years 1 month)
Ameritocracy was a highly ambitious startup that I cofounded. Our initial goal was to crowd-source the accuracy of political statements and eventually evolved into annotating the web. My responsibilities jumped between product development, branding, UI and UX design, front end development, copywriting, and advertising design.
Delve Networks (evolved into LimeLight)
January 2008 – March 2008 (3 months)
My short stint here was nonetheless fruitful, with a lot of challenging UI work. At the time, Delve was creating a B2B video management system and our challenge was to make some rather complex interfaces simple and aesthetically pleasing.
3Guppies, Inc. (swallowed by Myxer)
September 2006 – December 2007 (1 year 4 months)
This position vastly improved my front end and UI design skills, and gave me an early taste of product design. I worked under a handful of senior designers and developers to transform the product from a ringtone-focused site to one that made it easier to get content onto and off of mobile phones and display it online.
September 2004 – September 2006 (2 years 1 month)
Created nearly a hundred basic (and a couple Flash-based) websites for high school seniors looking to get into ivy league colleges. Improved on a lot of my rudimentary design, HTML and CSS skills here.
