I’m a nomadic product designer and photographer currently based in San Diego, California. I lead a team of designers at Automattic where we work on WordPress.com and other products.

Originally focused on checkout and upgrades on WordPress.com, I became lead of the first design team at the Automattic less than a year after joining the company. My team is currently working on the design and launch of get.blog, a new domain registrar.
