Who is Michael

Hi! I'm Michael.

A Product Designer. Passionate about HCI, data visualization, UX design, and qualitative collection.


A little about who I am...

Surfer, paddleboarder, entrepreneur, start-up-junkie...


Industrial designer, trained Italian marble sculptor, furniture designer, and painter.

As a connoisseur of espresso, I bow to the complexity of pulling the perfect shot.

Professional Deeper Dive:

In the past 13 months, post-2023, I have created a Lean UX team and supported 12 frontend systems that facilitate Mira Genetic Experiments for scientists in the MRD space at Adaptive Biotechnologies. I implemented a lean UX research approach that utilizes modern qualitative tools to ensure better user efficiency. Adaptive Biotechnologies is pioneering immune medicine by using our unique approach to read the immune story within each of us and apply that understanding to improve the diagnosis and treatment of disease. As a designer with 20 years of experience in brand, product design, and UX, I have previously held roles such as Interactive Design Director at Yahoo and co-creative director at Time Warner. I specialized in new monetized solutions, product R&D, and development in these roles. As a skilled designer, 3D designer, product manager, and certified SCRUM Master, I have helped companies create innovative experiences. Moving forward, my passion projects involve exploring AR and Mixed Reality XR/UX for military and medical applications. I am currently pursuing Unity UX Design & Prototyping for XR-based UX.

UX Design Principles For Seniors & Older Adults - Part II


I'm an avid paddleboarder and surfer in the PNW too Hawaii. My parents formally retired from the US Navy, and I've lived on both coastal seaboards of the United States as well as Puerto Rico and Italy. I'm an avid lover of the ocean, sea life, scuba diving, the environment, and those that will protect it like the SeaSheppard organization.  Additionally, I'm a fan of James Gandolfini Jr. and created a filmography infographic about his impressive carrier. 38 nominations and 19 carrier awards. I had no idea!
