A little about me
Hi, my name is Kevin and I'm a Product Designer from Toronto, currently living in beautiful San Francisco. I love learning, tinkering and creating.
I'm currently working at Twitch, where my time is spent helping our creators make a living doing what they love.
Previously I was a Design Lead at Flipp. During my time, I help to create effective design frameworks, manage our mobile app, conduct user research and craft great user experiences. My focus was on growing our team, mentoring other designers and continually improving the way we work.
I enjoy work in the product space because I love collaborating to solve problems and to build out a vision. I embrace being challenged and I'm focussed on improving how we communicate, which I think is one of the most important things about design.
Growing up in a household where I could never beat my cousins at Street Fighter has taught me resilience in a totally humbling way. I apply those lessons to my everyday life: it doesn't matter how many times you fail as long as you learn and focus on improvement. As someone famous once said, you win or you learn.
In my free time, I'm always trying to learn and take on new hobbies. Most recently, I've been learning to play guitar and I started reading comic books.
When I have time off I like to travel to new places looking for sneaker stores and learning about history and the local culture. I enjoy hiking off the beaten path whenever I can. If there is a view, I'm there.
If I were to go back to school I would love to learn about industrial design. Working in the physical space is fascinating to me and I can really appreciate well-designed, long product lifetime products (furniture, appliances, cars, just to name a few).
