According to family lore, the name Faja (we say it “Fey-juh”) comes from our Polish pipe-making ancestors. I continue this lineage of craftsmanship, designing digital tools that satisfy the needs of modern life.

Since the turn of the century, I’ve been making technology more usable, useful, and fulfilling. Usability and utility are prerequisites, so people’s needs are always at the center of my thinking. I also bring an aesthetic sensibility to elevate work beyond mere functionality. After all, the most effective tools are a pleasure to use while accomplishing something meaningful.

I earned my UX chops with the brilliant folks at Blink UX in Seattle.
I mastered mobile with Raizlabs in Boston.
Now, I design digital systems for the physical world at the MBTA.

Personally, I’m a bit of an idealist. I look for the beauty and humor in life, and approach new challenges with optimism. I also enjoy coffee any time, urban cycling, music without words, and experimental photography.
