My name is Paul.
I'm a technically-inclined Product Designer looking to collaborate with Director / VP level design leadership and the Product team, to build a more cohesive design & product experience.
I love Design Systems & Design R&D.
@ Stealth Startup in 2021...
I was Lead Product Designer, Product Manager and Web Developer of a small, early-stage startup. I lead design processes to bring an engineering proof-of-concept through to a cross-platform, chat-based medical application now in beta testing for iOS and Android.
@ Tidepool, 2017–2021
I was Core Designer of an FDA-regulated, automated insulin delivery iPhone app for Type 1 Diabetics. I worked closely and iterated with the Human Factors team, balancing short-term FDA requirements and long-term design vision. I brought risk-averse device partners into the design process to build confidence. I built a design system focused on visualizing health data. I grew and cultivated the design team to 6 designers.
@ Google, 2014–2017
I was Design Lead for the Chrome & Android security teams, focused on biometrics, authentication methods, and browser security features.
I lead the redesign and relaunch of Find My Device to coincide with Google I/O 2017.
My 20% project researched, designed and published public Material Design guidance on User Education.
