Stu is a Designer based in
Silicon Valley, California.

I run my own design studio where I collaborate with companies big and small, cultural and commercial.

Currently I'm leading Design at, modeling LLM-native voice experiences. (Y Combinator, W23)

Additionally, I curate streams on contemporary culture with JPEG. Join the newsletter here. (free)

I spent the past five years as a Designer in Residence with NFX, building a high-status Venture Capital brand and designing the firm's robust software suite.

Prior to their public launch, I advised and designed a handful of core experiences for Piñata Farms.

At ClassDojo, I focused the scaling of their Educational technology network to millions of students, parents, and teachers worldwide.

Before that, I helped found and develop Ravti — an HVAC marketplace for commercial real estate. (Y Combinator, S14)

At Radius, I led design for core products.

This website peeks into my process, my play. Take a look around, and say hi if you're up to anything interesting.
