Hi, I'm Chris 👋

I'm a San Francisco based product designer currently working at Syapse, helping build solutions to deliver better outcomes for cancer patients. Previously I designed at Sunrun and Citrix

I enjoy solving complex problems and bringing thoughtful design to different industries. I work across user research, high level UX design, beautiful UI design, and interactive prototyping to build products that are simple and delightful to use. 

I'm also a design and career coach on Designlab, where I provide 1-on-1 mentorship to aspiring designers around the world. 

When I'm not working, I can usually be found planning my next trip somewhere in the world, spending time with my Corgi, or making guacamole (let me know if you want my recipe).

What do I believe in? 💯

I move fast, ship quickly, and learn constantly.

I work with customers and stakeholders to craft a product vision.

I listen and empathize with people at every step of the process. 

I know when to achieve pixel perfection in the UI, and when to get a quick n' dirty prototype out for testing.

I strive to design products that are not only beautiful and intuitive, but unlock value in peoples' lives. 

Let's create something awesome together. You can reach me at
