The next chapter and hiring a new team

Many of you who follow me know that a few months ago I left Starwood Hotels & Resorts after a 9 year run leading their digital design and other things for their Global Brand Design team. I am insanely proud of the work that we were able to create during my time there from re-imagining what the design of a hotel web site could be, launching a new brand in a video game, building a partnership with Apple and ultimately living out a life long dream with the work and resulting exposure for the SPG App for Apple Watch.

But I’m moving on to become the new Head of Design for Citi and I’m putting together a new world-class design studio in NYC and I’m looking for the best designers, writers, IA’s and producers. There’s a lot of work to do but if you know me then you know we are going to create amazing ideas, obsess over every detail of bringing those ideas to life and we will have a lot of fun along the way.
