Senior leader.

Guiding organizations. Driving design.

i am Anthony

I'm a design leader capable of hiring, developing and inspiring design teams while still ready to roll up the sleeves and contribute to the work. With a grounding in service design and UX, I am currently Executive Design Director at JP Morgan Chase and an Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University in San Francisco.

ABILITIES

BUILDING DESIGN CULTURE

I have experience hiring, mentoring and cultivating high-performing interdisciplinary design teams - From leading a 10,000 sq-ft studio remodel, to relocating to NYC scale a new studio team from scratch.

PROJECT LEADERSHIP ON CLIENT PROGRAMS

I lead high visibility design projects and programs, managing design/technology resources and coaching executives, clients, and stakeholders through the design process, from initial strategy and scoping to final implementation.

EXPERIENCED DESIGN PRACTIONER

I am a seasoned designer with depths in Service Design, UX Strategy, and User Research. I leverage my human-centered design mindset (aka: design thinking) and its methods to re-frame problems, imagine new possibilities, and rally stakeholders.
