Hi, I'm Jess.

I'm the head of design at Clutter in Los Angeles, previously with VICE Media and Rent the Runway in New York.

I'm fascinated by the co-evolution of culture and technology, and I love leading teams to find simple design solutions to complex problems. At Clutter, I'm focused on growing a design team to tackle the real-world challenges of moving and storing items through well-designed technology.

While at VICE, I built a product design and user research team that designed five initiatives: a complete redesign for VICE editorial websites, a new platform for VICE's video library, new flagship VICE mobile apps, a suite of digital products for a new cable TV channel, and a fresh CMS.
