I’m the General Manager, Product and Design Architect for Help and Subscription Services at Verizon Media.
Before Verizon Media, I was VP of Design at Houzz, where I gave Houzz a unique visual voice through marketing and branding on the web and mobile. I’ve also served as VP Product for Home & TV at Nuance, where I created the Technology & Engineering Emmy winning Dragon TV. Before that, I founded Konfabulator, the first desktop widget platform acquired by Yahoo. I sculpted it into the Primetime Emmy Award-winning Connected TV platform. I also spent time at Apple in the mid-nineties creating an updated user experience for the Mac OS. I redefined Linux usability at Eazel, made web-based server administration easy to use at Sun and PGP, and created a computer and consumer electronic device customization genre with Konfabulator and Kaleidoscope. I was once called “The grandfather of consumer customization” by Newsweek.
When I’m not creating products, I’m volunteering for Wonder Dog Rescue and Goatlandia, crafting delicious cocktails, or taking pictures and traveling with my beautiful wife.
