Hello. I'm Ricky (he/his), a designer currently at Apple. Previously, I studied at Carnegie Mellon University where I pursued double majors in the School of Design and the Human-Computer Interaction Institute.

As a designer, I care deeply about how technology can be translated and transformed into a more humanistic language, and how we can better democratize design, creation, and collaboration through creative software and tooling. While interface, web, and product-related works are my primary focus, my background in visual design also extends to printed matter + ephemera, editorial design, art direction, and analog forms of making. Stay tuned for upcoming projects related to ikebana, DJing + beat-making, and a more poetic web.

Currently, I'm at Apple 🍎 designing for new digital experiences that tell interactive, visual stories for Mac products. In the past, I've worked at Coda ✴️ as a Product Designer to reimagine the future of collaboration, productivity, and creation tools and with Elana Schlenker 💅🏻 on branding and publication projects for places like Facebook, A24, Euphoria, and the Walker Art Center. For personal and freelance work, I've made motion designs for HommeGirls, a lovely website for Polina Aronova, a 40-page book titled 'Collecting the Uncollectible', and an awarded publication entitled 'Probing Documentation Practices.' I'm always opened to joining interesting projects in publishing, fashion, music, education, and tech.

Aside from work, I love exploring music, photography, and art in whatever ways I can. Here are some of the city pop, ambient, and electronic music that I'm currently enjoying. I love sharing really good music with my really good friends, going through the painful process of handwriting beautiful words, and building up my personal collection of many things (I'm very into vintage home objects). Ask me what I'm currently listening to; I'm always down for good conversations!
