I make type and typography accessible to everyone in my role as co-founder, UX manager and design lead for Google Fonts, (read more about that here).

On the Material Design team I introduced design tokens to Material (and the rest of the company). I also helped launch the Google Store and started the web framework used by Google’s marketing websites.

Recently I returned to Berlin, Germany after spending time in London, New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.
