Current work

Sophomores

I've released 3 albums of music (Kid LightbulbBedtime Rituals and You Know I) and a short collection of piano music (Post-Midnight). I've also composed weirder stuff, like a 3-part showcasing the bass guitar, and an electroacoustic piece comprised entirely of sounds from doors and voice.

Wayfair

I lead product management efforts for Wayfair's customer-facing "planning" tools - Lists & Room Planner - which help customers better compare & visualize the things they want to buy for their homes.

A time- and engagement-based social sharing app aiming to help rapidly spread important ideas. Directed product strategy and rollout of for iOS and web. Launched July 2015, removed shortly thereafter :(

Audiodrops

A location-based music discovery app. Advised on UX and product strategy.

More about me

I started playing classical piano at the age of 4, which naturally led to my curiosity for sound and the vastly different ways it can be made. I gave up on piano (temporarily) at age 13 and picked up a few different instruments instead, starting with the bass guitar. I also started songwriting around them (including Bushwhack, a previous incarnation of cine-metal act Earthside) and exploring his own ideas through recorded sounds and lo-fi MIDI-based instrumentation. I've worked with a diverse set of musicians including Earthside, hip hop producer t. agency, DJs The WIG & Panooc, avant-garden singer and dancer Mary Esther Carter, among others.

I fell into product management by accident. I have a BS in Music Technology from Northeastern University, and in an effort to make money, I landed a gig at a music startup doing customer support, which eventually evolved into a product role. I now love understanding the very human psychology behind people's problems, and building products to solve them.
