Since you’re here, a little about me . . .
I am a designer and technologist leading digital design at Google Brand Studio Creative.
Previously, I was a journalist at The New York Times, focusing on innovation in visual communication. There, as Director of Immersive Platforms Storytelling, I lead a team that explored new approaches in video, motion graphics, and virtual/augmented reality.
I’ve been honored with recognition for this work with some awards.
At the Times I led an initiative that brought together teams from product, design and the newsroom to introduce augmented reality to the core New York Times apps, the newsrooms first efforts in spatial computing.
I occasionally teach, most recently a motion graphics course for journalists at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, and I share with audiences internationally at schools and conferences.
I studied at the University of Pennsylvania in the Digital Media Design (BSE) program — an interdisciplinary concentration within Computer Science Engineering focusing on the intersection of art and technology.
I now call the San Francisco Bay Area home, along with my wife, Jessica Ferri, our son Roman, and dog Ralphie.
