For 20 years, I've been building brands and digital solutions around a basic philosophy: people love design that doesn't suck. I use clean design and simple user experience to build visuals that last longer than the current trend.

I was born in Brooklyn to Greek parents, which meant choosing either art school or food service. I studied fine arts and design at the School of Visual Arts, and started working professionally the day after graduation. Since then I've led design teams in creating for some of the biggest financial, retail, and entertainment brands in the world.

I'm currently a member of the design team at Netflix, the world's leading Internet television network with over 60 million members in over 50 countries. Prior to that, I led the all-star design team for Intuit, helping users get a visual grip on their finances and actually enjoy the process. Design magic in action.

In my spare time, I enjoy carpentry, searching for a decent pita, and writing dumb shit on Twitter.
