Hi, I'm Conrad! I'm a product designer at Google. Right now, I focus on growth for Google Fi.
Previously, as a member of Google’s Associate Design program, I worked on machine vision and cameras for Google AI,
and helped launch the next generation of Hotel Search with Google Travel.

Before switching to UX in 2016 by way of Carnegie Mellon's HCII Previously, I was the 2014
North American Scrabble Champion; and a food truck cook + manager in Portland.

In my free time, I'm part minimalist nomad (50 states, 23 countries), metal drummer,
sour beer geek, Scrabble ambassador, and aspiring frisbee golfer. A Bay Area native,
I'm always happy to meet junior UXers for coffee in Oakland, San Francisco, or Mountain View!
