About

Hey You 👋🏽, I’m Jason.I’m an Interaction and Product designer with a background in Economics. I’m currently a graduate student in the Interaction Design Masters program at SVA in NY and interested in opportunities for May 2018 onward. Resume here.

I’m currently a Product Designer at Edquity: an early stage startup focusing on financial resources for low-income high school and college students. 

 

 

My economics background informs a lot of my thinking about the financial industry and the products it needs or doesn’t need. Over the course of my graduate career, I’ve had the opportunity to groups spanning from millennial to homeless individuals, to better understand what tools would best serve them. My current thesis project is shaping up to be a blockchain app for homeless people. 

For the past couple of years, I’ve been exploring how to make financial consumer products accessible to communities that are underbanked or underrepresented. I often try to bring a balance between accessibility and great design to financial products that are traditionally designed with one user in mind for one use case. When I’m not knee deep in all things fintech chances are I’m watching Seinfeld, trying to read one book a week and failing or on my couch anxiously awaiting the return of Game of Thrones.
