Hi, I’m John. Nice to meet you.

I work to make products more approachable, accessible, and useful for everyone.

I’m currently a product manager for Design Systems in Google Search. For users, that means making Google Search results more organized, legible, and delightful to use. For teams inside Google, that means making it easy to build brilliant features for everyone at Google scale.

Previously, I’ve managed products in advertising (Google), multi-sided marketplaces (Managed by Q), and social (Meetup).

I also co-founded a Y Combinator-backed startup that later became Wave and SendWave. SendWave was acquired in 2020.

I love visual design and the web. I taught myself frontend development while waiting tables after college, and worked my way up from there. I do my best to read a lot.

I live in the Bay Area with my super-talented wife, son, and pug.
