Hi, I'm Scott.

I’m a senior product designer based in San Francisco. As a former management consultant, I blend design aesthetics with solid business sense.

My Story
HOW DID I GET INTO DESIGN?

I started my career in UX consulting at PwC.  Shortly thereafter, I pivoted to UX by joining PwC's tech lab, where I designed internal apps and received valuable mentorship.

After my time in the lab, I joined DeNovo, a product built by PwC's FinTech group. After building my 'design chops' on DeNovo, I joined PwC's Analytics Apps team. While there, I helped design PwC's design system language. Additionally, I began moonlighting for a few startups on the side.

WHAT'S MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?

It all starts with RESEARCH. Quantitative tells what has happened, and qualitative tells why. I believe that to design the most optimal solution, first seek to understand the problem, then rapidly iterate on solutions.

When designing, I always...

  • Clarify the goals of business stakeholders AND the users -- clarify the obvious questions
  • Validate designs with users as quickly as possible -- same day if possible
  • Seek feedback early and often -- let the stakeholders weigh-in early
  • Drop biases -- we all got 'em, but be aware and actively combat them
WHAT DO I OUTSIDE OF WORK?

Endurance sports, working in my barbershop, and brainstorming wild startup ideas with my wife.
