Hi, I’m Scott!
Pleased to meet you...

I’m a product designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, currently designing native mobile experiences at eBay. I have over 9 years of professional experience, with extensive experience designing for e-commerce and conversion-oriented websites and applications. I hold a BA in Design from UCLA.
 

 
 

Background

Previously, I was a UI/UX designer at GetGoing, a venture backed Y Combinator startup that built fun unique travel products. GetGoing was acquired by BCD Travel, one of the largest corporate travel management companies in the world. Currently, I’m a product designer at eBay.

From wireframes, high fidelity mockups, to interactive prototypes, I strive to create compelling and functional designs across web and mobile. For the next step in my career, I’m looking to join a product team that shares my love of ideas and that uses human-centered design to shape compelling digital experiences.

Outside of work, you can find me running long distances, hiking, and sightseeing. I also enjoy consuming podcasts, looking at Swiss type, and eating pizza.
