Present (Feb ‘19)

I currently live in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, New York.

I am Senior Director of Digital Design at Casper in NYC. I run a small team of designers and researchers. We work on product and service development aimed at helping people get the most from their sleep. Most recently, we shipped Glow - a magical light for better sleep. Time called it ‘your ticket to sweet dreams’ and Forbes said it was their favorite gadget of 2019.

I am trying to be more considered about what things are essential to me and genuinely matter.

I have fallen in love with Zadie Smith and her essays in ‘Feel Free’ and ‘Changing my mind’. She’s a rare voice of clarity, nuance and balance in a time of noise and polarities.

I am revisiting ‘Against Everything’ by Mark Grief - particularly the ideas of ‘Aestheticism’ and ‘Perfectionism’ as ways to live.

7 years in, I am continuing to learn to box with the guys at Church Street and am learning to play Jiu Jitsu at Clockwork.
