As the founder and principal at Void, I help fast-growing companies of all sizes define and achieve their business goals. I hold a variety of roles, including: product strategy; defining goals and KPIs; customer development; user research; user-experience and user-interface design; and hiring, coaching, and managing Agile product teams.
Selected Consulting Projects
Alongside Avec.us, I oversaw UX and IA for Theory’s millennial-focused 20th Anniversary capsule collection.
I redesigned the HDC’s customer development and digital content strategy, and oversaw an overdue redesign.
I helped DoSomething overhaul their strategy, process, and personnel to improve on the org’s social-impact goals.
In addition to product strategy work, I like to get my hands dirty as a SquareSpace preferred developer. Business leaders, authors, artists, local businesses, friends, and my brother have trusted me to design and develop their sites. Here are a few.

Product Leadership Roles
I spent the first phase of my career leading product teams at a handful of great companies. I’m indebted to the many talented and passionate people at these companies who helped launch the products listed below.
As VP of Product, I oversaw the re-platforming of the company’s flagship website and led several product teams including content, marketplace, ecom, innovation, native mobile, planning tools, and user research. I wrote about my experience and learnings on Medium, if you’re into that sort of thing.

As an avid writer and voracious reader, I believe each of us has a story worth telling. Based on dozens of user interviews with aspiring and established authors, I created Transom to help writers with the age-old problem of disorganized notes.
App Store Reviews
I just got this app and I immediately love it. I've had other apps that do the same thing but this one is just better.
Since papers and notebooks can get lost, I was very pleased and eager to give Transom a go and I was very pleased I did!
Wonderfully simplistic app that works! Thank you.
Brought on in the summer of 2012 to build the company's first formal Product & Design team, I staffed up and oversaw the responsive redesign of delivery.com and its mobile apps, including a full rebrand + identity redesign.
As Thrillist’s first Director of Product, I oversaw the design and launch of the lifestyle brand’s web and mobile products. In three years, we released more than a dozen mobile and web products across Thrillist, JackTheads, and Thrillist Rewards.
I’m an avid rock climber, a boxing enthusiast, and an amateur ukuleleist. I’m also a voracious reader (and an occasional writer) of fiction and poetry.
I live with my wife, son, and dog in Tarrytown, NY, where I can be found over-caffeinating at Muddy Water or wandering the aisles of our local hardware store.
