I'm a designer from Baltimore - living in Brooklyn.
I have been designing digital products at Hillary for America for the past year. As the sole product designer on staff I led a team of volunteers from the summer of 2015, through a competitive primary, until the first votes were cast in Iowa. After that, I recruited and now co-lead the product design team that supports every aspect of the campaign.
This past year has been an incredible learning experience. I've had opportunities to design a mobile app that helped us win delegates in the caucuses (Wired), a game that keeps our most passionate supporters engaged (App Store), phone banking and texting tools that have been used to contact millions of voters, and dozens of other applications.

Prior to the campaign I was the first product designer at charity: water who will forever be my family. Our innovative business model (NYTimes) and inspirational storytelling empowered thousands of fund-raisers, like Rachel, to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in need. During my time there we had the honor of serving more than 5 million people in 22 countries.
I have also worked with General Assembly to design a networking product for their alumni community, and Hard Candy Shell where we designed apps for start-ups & media companies including Disney, Discovery Channel, and AOL.
I nervously spoke at the M.I.T. Global Innovation Summit in Guatemala and the Future of Web Design conference in New York City. Oh, and then there was that time I got to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange - that was cool.
Also, I just started posting some things.
Thanks for stopping by,Denny
