Google Creative Lab

Product Design Lead

Earlier in my career, I had the privilege of working at Google’s product & marketing thinktank led by Andy Berndt and Robert Wong.

I worked as part of a cross-functional team to evolve Google Glass, reimagine Google Search, and envision new products for Google X.

I left Google Creative Lab on excellent terms and immediately began working with them as the first client at my studio.
