Education

Notable Projects

At Google, I specialize in early-stage idea development, creating prototypes, and experimentation with assorted user experience demos with short turn-around times. Most such prototypes are confidential, but here is a short sampling of some of the publicly launched stuff.

Patents

I don’t believe in the validity of software patents per se; if you want to look at my technological contributions, please see the products I launched.
