👋 Hey there!
I'm Chris, a product, visual, and interaction designer.
I'm currently designing at Gemini as a Product Design Manager, helping to redefine how individuals and institutions experience the financial system and money.
In my role, I lead teams of ux designers, visual designers, researchers, and copywriters, while partnering closely with product, engineering and business leaders. My teams help make sense of existing landscapes, form a clear point of view, research, design, and deliver the right solution.
I’ve worked at some great companies throughout my career, where I learned how to strategize, design, and build digital products. Most recently at Northwestern Mutual (formerly LearnVest) as a Senior Director of Product Design, where I built out a design discipline and studio at the NM headquarters in the great city of Milwaukee. Read about our team on the Invision Genome Project. Prior work experience includes interactive and design industry leaders Razorfish and VSA Partners, in addition to consulting with Critical Mass and SapientNitro.
Aside from my day job, I am a principal and founding member of BlueCity LLC. Read about us on Wired.com. I'm also a member of Invision's Design Leadership Forum.
When I'm not staring at a computer screen, I'm either chauffeuring my kids around to activities or doing a home improvement project.
