We’re a collective of designers, marketers, and engineers based in New York City, with teammates throughout the US. Founded by an experienced designer from Silicon Valley and marketer from the Fortune 15, we are equally versed in the unique challenges of building a product and brand from 0-to-Launch, and creating or scaling a new offering to millions of customers.Let's work together
I’ve been passionate about technology since childhood, and built my first website with Adobe Flash at the age of 12. My enthusiasm for all things tech led me to Carnegie Mellon, where I studied Human-Computer Interaction and Information Systems. After graduating, I spent 8+ years in house as part of innovative design teams in Silicon Valley, including Google and Venmo, before starting a solo design practice.
I co-founded jKoncept to help innovators validate their ideas and bring them to life. I believe that iterative design, lean prototyping and validation research are the keys to building a successful product and business. These methods can help not only early startups, but also large titans looking to shake up their industry or bring a new offering to market. I’ve been lucky to help numerous new ventures apply these methods and have watched them blossom to find long term success. On behalf of the jKoncept team, I look forward to doing the same for you.
Over the past decade, I have amassed experience in marketing, analytics, and data-driven strategy that can be summed up in one word: diverse. From my beginnings at top digital agencies (Digitas, Dentsu Aegis), to building and leading marketing and analytics teams at early-stage tech startups, and a tour in the Fortune 15 world on a cross-departmental strategy team working to maximize Verizon’s investments in emerging platforms, I’ve learned how companies big and small successfully and sustainably approach growth. As a consultant, I’ve worked with venture-funded companies with leading investors like a16z, First Round Capital, Tiger Global, Floodgate, NFX, Insight Partners, and more in industries spanning from financial wellness to cybersecurity, big data platforms, B2B marketplaces, medtech and beyond. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard University.
Chasing perfection can become a massive drain on resources. Whether we’re designing your website, new app or digital experience, or building an automated marketing machine for your company, we believe in creating a solid base, launching fast, learning and iterating
We know success comes only to companies who listen to their customers’ needs, rather than dictate what they should want. This plays out in how we work with our clients, and how we help you create value for your users. All that we do - from early market validation, to UI design and usability research - centers around having open ears.
We believe in building long term relationships with our clients. This means thinking beyond the never ending retainer cycle that many traditional agencies use to leech off their clients, and helping you graduate to hiring in house designers and marketers when your company has grown up.
Agencies get a bad rep for over-indexing on process and adding layers of complexity to rack up billable hours. We're not your typical agency folk. We've been in the startup world for over a decade because we like to get stuff done. Our goal is to make your day easier by executing on your vision.
