2017 — 2019
San Francisco, CA

Led the product design of the Houseparty app, collaborating with Sam Whittington. I established the entire product experience for Houseparty, including UI, UX, user flows, animations, and behaviors; as well as all the auxiliary visual elements like branding or marketing.

2014 — 2017
Tel Aviv, Israel

Before Houseparty there was Yevvo, Air, and last but not least Meerkat. All focusing on live video streaming, trailblazing the possibilities of bringing people together in real time.

I worked as a lead designer on all of these products, later co-designing with talented Fei Xiao, focusing on everything from core design, user flows, animations, illustrations, branding and marketing.

Side Projects


Took an opportunity to help out a friend at his metalworking shop, learning the craft and helped create multiple custom pieces for restaurants and residential projects.


Slug Bicycles designs titanium gravel and mountain bike frames, while focusing on community building and increasing access to bicycles.

Our core principles revolve around community building (through organizing inclusive and fun cycling events here in the Bay Area), as well as working with non profits such as Outride to fundraise towards diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cycling industry.

For me, it has been a great venue to exercise my branding, photography, and illustration work.
