Digital Product Designer
I’m a digital product designer, leading the Product Design team at Intercom. Before that I co-founded and designed Android Wear and designed Google Flights. I live in Dublin, Ireland with my wife, son, and daughter. I'm old enough to have a blog.
Director of Product Design
I run the Product Design team at Intercom. We're building personal, simple messaging tools that allow website and app makers to see and talk with their users. We're ambitious, design-focused, and growing fast. Oh, and we're hiring designers. :)
While working at Google I started a 20% project to design and build a smartwatch. Over the course of several years the project grew, was incubated in Google[x], and developed into Android Wear, Google's smartwatch platform. I helped conceive the product direction, designed large parts of the UI, wrote the design guidelines, and presented it at Google I/O.
I was the sole designer of Google Flights. I also designed travel-related results on the Google search results page. Some novel features of Flights (e.g. independently choosing outbound and return legs, search by map) are now common industry patterns. Which is nice.
