I live in San Francisco and make things — and companies (and teams) that make things. On the internet.
These days I'm a VP of Product at Aol, where I co-direct Alpha, the company's consumer products lab. We're trying out all kinds of neat stuff, like Pip and Starlike. Prior to Alpha I ran the design team for Aol's Brands division.
I love all manner of technology products, so I also co-host a show called MVP where I talk about them every week.
In 2008 I founded a startup called gdgt ("gadget") that helped people find the right stuff to buy, write really beautiful reviews, and connect with other owners of products they wanted or owned. Aol acquired that company in 2013.
Occasionally I also write things for publications like the New York Times and TechCrunch.
