As the engineering director and team leader for Adobe Voice, he’s a firm believer that everyone has at least one good story to tell. His passion comes from seeing what people make using the products he creates. When he’s not at work, he can usually be found buried under his two children.
As the product leader for Adobe Voice, he has shaped its driving interactions and principles: radical simplicity, the power of voice, and the potential for playful iteration to make everything better. He’s been passionate about storytelling since he was a kid imagining galactic empires with little plastic bricks.
A multi-tasking master, his keen eye for detail and strong bias toward action keeps the product team moving full speed ahead. A Bay Area native, he spends his off hours getting dirty in the garden, and waiting for the next morning when it all begins again.
He’s got the secrets to sweetening your voice. As an engineer of the audio sub-system that balances voice with music, he makes sure every recording sounds professional. He’s currently consumed with new home ownership, but when he’s not busy fixing things, he’s cooking up culinary delights or playing with his cats.
He’s the master of motion graphics and rendering code that powers Adobe Voice animations. As a kid growing up in the UK, Legos were his building blocks of choice and now the only limits to what he builds is his own imagination. His great escape from coding is the outdoors where you can find him hiking Bay Area trails, rock climbing, and biking.
A passionate problem solver, he wrote the majority of the code for the Adobe Voice rendering engine. From an early age, he knew he was destined for a career working with computers. When he’s not in the office, he’s an avid gamer, world traveler and he’s spent a lot of time in Japan immersing himself in an intense language acquisition program.
She puts on her customer hat and drives Adobe Voice through its paces, rooting out software bugs in the application with the same care she would use to pluck weeds from her own garden. When she’s not busy rigorously testing the app, she’s an artist who enjoys painting flowers and plants, just as much as she loves growing them.
No matter what coding jobs come his way, he will get them done. Whether it’s building test automation or pushing bits around for the build system, he enjoys making things work. In the downtime, he loves to travel and write code (not necessarily at the same time). He has visited 26 countries, and lived in three for extended periods.
He’s a researcher with scores of customer interviews under his belt, eager to learn more about the stories people want to tell and how they want to tell them. This knowledge shapes the simple, powerful experiences that define Adobe Voice. When he’s not heads-down on a research project, you can find him exploring nature, cooking, or enjoying one of the Bay Area’s many fabulous restaurants.
He’s the driver of visionary design projects for a wide range of Adobe products and services intended to push boundaries. He brings user experiences to life, coding and prototyping during the design process. Before he joined Adobe XD, he founded Fluid where he actively explored the broader possibilities of digital media, playful software, games, toys, and motion graphics.
He’s a designer of cutting-edge interfaces and a customer advocate whose feedback helps him hone the user experience into an elegant and beautiful application. He discovered his love of motion graphics design years ago when creating video game compilations for his buddies. He enjoys life with his wife and two cats, wine tasting at local vineyards and playing Magic: The Gathering.
A builder of connected social communities with an authentic voice, she’s got a passion for sharing customers’ real stories, celebrating creativity and empowering people to use their voice to make an impact. Whether running along Bay Area trails, wandering through new cities or capturing the perfect food photo, she looks for the hidden beauty in the world and can’t help but document it.
He’s driven by the desire to create solutions that enable people to unlock their creative expression. His team is on a mission to find innovative ways to do just that. His personal passion for photography informs his leadership. Adobe Voice embodies his belief that customers of any skill level can create something that they’re proud of, as quickly and easily as taking a snapshot.
She translates customer needs into powerful technical solutions that have shaped many of Adobe’s flagship products. She’s also overseeing the development of a new wave of explorations, including Adobe Voice. She introduced her own kids to technology at an early age and is constantly inspired by watching a new generation transcend the traditional boundaries of technology and design.
