A few things that helped shape who I am today.

I was born on my mother’s 30th birthday. What are the odds?

Growing up, my parents involved me in a lot of organized sports. I played a little of everything, but got a heavy dose of soccer and hockey.

Early 90’s rock. NY Rangers win The Stanley Cup. Street Fighter II. The early 90’s were my favorite moment in pop culture.

Marist College rotunda.


I attended Marist College in NY. I began in Computer Science, but after a year of software programming I changed majors to graphics and design. I graduated in four years despite the switch.

I discovered CSS Zen Garden and taught myself advanced CSS. I started working more off hours and my job started to become a hobby.

I met a girl. One that makes me a better person and whom I consider my intellectual superior. Sara and I began dating.

Sara and I moved to Arizona and earned post-grad degrees. I (finally) learned to question tradition and everything in my life started falling into place.

I continued to grow as a designer / developer hybrid, but also got pretty good at designing and coding HTML emails. I also began tinkering with website performance.

After three years in Arizona, Sara and I moved back to New Jersey, bought a house, and tied the knot. My best friend is now my partner for life.

I landed a job as a designer at Canfield Scientific, a biotechnology & pharmaceutical company in New Jersey. I spent my days building web products in an industry that sorely needs thoughtful design.

I joined Stack Overflow's design team, where I work on products that help millions of developers worldwide while working remotely on a distributed product team.

Amidst my regular product work, I contributed to our design system and led the creation of one of the first email design systems.

I spoke at a few conferences, mentored a designer on my team, and leaned into the "leadership" part of my role.
