Hi, i'm Gary 👋

I am a California-based multidisciplinary Product Designer currently working at Meta Reality Labs. I am heavily craft-oriented in my approach to the problem-solving process and delivering evidence-based and outcome-driven products. I can thrive at all stages of this process, from identifying and validating a user problem to coding a high-fidelity prototype.

I balance my professional work with personal pursuits in the culinary arts, fishing, motorcycles, and film photography. Whether it’s a loaf of sourdough or a unique design problem, I’m one to respect the fundamentals but get wide-eyed at the prospect of the new and beautiful - as a result; I am in permanent beta.
