Blossom Interactive, Sep 2016
I’ve worked on many consumer products in my career, but I’ve gotten the most joy out of building interactive projects and installations.
The most satisfying thing I ever built was the 6 foot tall interactive flower that you can see above. Blossom Interactive was a project to raise awareness for Hunger Action Month in Philadelphia.
We built it with a funding from the Penn Praxis Social Impact Grant and partnered with four local non-profits.
Portal to the Parks
Another heart-warming project was the trailer pop-up exhibit we built to encourage visits to National Parks.
Our interactive wayfinding kiosks won Best User Experience at the PennApps hackathon in 2017.
Beer Selfie Stick
The Beer Selfie Sticks got honorable mention at the “Stupid $hit No One Needs” Hackathon hosted at NYU in 2017.
In the summer and fall of 2020 I had quite a few adventures in the Pacific Northwest.
One of my favorite trips was running all the way around Mount Hood with (40+ miles) with two friends who are dads. The scenery was just incredible, but we faced some unexpected challenges.
I write a newsletter every week about interesting stuff that I find in the world of product development and some updates on my projects.
