Product Design

I’m passionate about exploring digital and physical spaces, and the impact that design can have on people, communities, and businesses.

I’ve worked at Bench for the past three and a half years helping build the future of small business finance. I invested myself in more than producing work, but into helping shape how we think of, and build for, the people behind small businesses.

In that time, I’ve learned an exceptional amount about building products, growing a company, and working with people. A lot of my work highlights my time and experience building products at Bench.
