Things I've worked on

Design @ Sidewire

Sidewire was a place where you could find experts and insiders breaking down the day’s news in public chats. It was a worthwhile product, but on June 30th 2017, we decided to shut it down.

I worked at Sidewire from November 2015 to July 2017 and was the sole designer for the last year. We transformed our social platform into an awesome place for experts and readers alike. The best thing about Sidewire was that every expert was verified (no trolls!). We had some incredible conversations that I don’t think could have happened anywhere else. I learned a ton about chat tools and what's needed to allow people to create their own content.

If you’re a designer living in or visiting SF and we haven’t met yet, shoot me a message and let’s grab coffee. My treat.

Bonus! These are some other folks I'd be happy to introduce you to.
