Google Chrome

San Francisco, California. 2013 to present.

Chrome is the web browser of choice for over a billion people around the world. Designing something that works for all these people takes lots of patience and deliberation. Most of my work here is future-facing and not yet released.

Abide

Menlo Park, California. 2015 to present.

Abide has helped millions of Christians pray through guided audio prayers. The startup comprises full-time employees and regular volunteers applying Silicon Valley technical expertise to spiritual practice. I work on design and web development.

I designed and built the marketing site at abide.is

AfriScout

Nairobi, Kenya with Google.org, PCI Global, and iHub. August 2016.

Drought has devastated the hundreds of millions of nomadic pastoralists across Africa. In 2013, nonprofit PCI Global began a successful project to use satellite maps to help pastoralists make more informed decisions about herd migration. Our team deployed by Google.org collaborated with PCI to design a way to scale the project from paper map distribution to a digital solution.

We designed the app collaboratively in one week using the design sprint methodology
I built an interactive prototype which we took to a Maasai village for interviews

You and Me Forever

Mountain View, California with Crazy Love. 2014 to 2015.

Along with a team of volunteers, I designed an interactive app version of the latest book by bestselling Christian author Francis Chan. The app allows readers to share their insights through text or video. The proceeds of this project are helping relieve poverty-induced prostitution in Ethiopia.

Nepal Human Development Report

Kathmandu, Nepal with Google and Kathmandu Living Labs. July 2015.

Google deployed a team of volunteers to help nonprofits in post-earthquake Nepal with technical needs. My teammate Sumier and I collaborated with local tech nonprofit Kathmandu Living Labs on a project for Nepal's government to visualize human development statistics. The result is now available on the government's website.
