About Jonathan

I'm a product design leader who has placed best-in-class software experiences in the hands of billions of users in Silicon Valley since 2012.

I am passionate about product design and creating valuable experiences by innovating with hardware and software.

I have a unique blend of design experience across both consumer and enterprise products. Some industries I've designed for include TV, healthcare, telecommunications, networking, government, and big data.

In recent years, my focus has been on artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions. Having a proven track record of building and leading teams to success, I see myself as a shepherd of the next generation of design professionals, responsible for their success and drive.

In my free time, you may find me walking my Goldendoodle, Mason, or hiking with my wife and two sons on a beautiful trail.
