I'll soon be joining 18F as an Innovation Specialist in its Consulting division.
Why I'm joining.
Helped establish The Washington Post’s NYC product design shop, WPNYC; focused mostly on internal publishing tools to empower journalists.
Some closing thoughts and why I joined in the first place.
I’ve had a long, sometimes painful relationship with everyone’s favorite target. I designed the first version in 2010 and helped shape the overall UX design of the infamous 2013 version — which successfully enrolled many millions of people in health coverage.
What I did, how I got to do it, and why I’m proud to have been a part of it.
Defined the product roadmap with medium- and long-term strategic planning for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs' primary humanitarian portal.
What we did.
