Product designer for ambitious teams
Hey! I’m Marcus.
I love building impactful software and have been fortunate to work with extraordinary teams in diverse environments.
At Facebook, I helped build many of the foundational products that served over a billion users. Following my love for product design, I founded a design studio where I partnered with early-stage teams going from zero-to-one. More recently, I led product design for OhmConnect, improving our energy grid by building the world's largest virtual power plant.
Currently, I’m a consulting product designer and early-stage investor looking for ways to make continued impact. If you’re looking for product design leadership, I'd love to discuss how I can help.

Play nice but win
Never forget that in business you win to survive. Embrace competition and fight to outcompete the market.
Behavioral science dictates every user flow. Understand and harness heuristics that benefit your users and business. [some favorites]
Living with complexity
Complex ≠ complicated. Something complex can be made simple when the person using it has a conceptual model for how it works.
Start with a cupcake
The quicker the feedback, the better the idea will be. Get feedback quickly by making a cupcake, then use what you’ve learned to make a cake.
