Working with Ted on our smart-apartment cloud platform was a pleasure. His attention to detail and focus on what matters most - the user experience - permeated all aspects of the job.
Ted took our product, with all its complexities and unnecessary screens, and simplified it to the point where our customers can just dive right in. He listened well and knew just the right moments to show us what we wanted before we even knew we wanted it.

Michael RovitoFounder & CEO, Dwelo

Ted has been a high performing designer on the UX Design Team, going out of his way to understand our customers and the problems we are solving for them, so that we can design and deliver the right solutions. He was an integral part of shipping product improvements and enhancements, making 2020 a success.

Gilbert GuerreroClimate UX Design Team Manager

Ted is one of those rare talents who can easily traverse the theoretical, conceptual and practical of the design process without over indexing in any one approach. He is able to challenge standard conventions in a manner which the most skeptical want to embrace. Ted will always be on my "must hire” list.

Joseph O'SullivanHead of User Experience Business Banking, Capital One

Ted goes above and beyond what is asked of him on a daily basis. He does a thorough job of exploring design ideas and explains them in a clearly thought out manner. He thinks of design solutions from many different approaches, from motion graphics to mobile apps. 'Over deliver' is what I've experienced working with Ted. He's also a wiz at new technologies. I would recommend him again and again.

Kimberly Johnson ClarkAssociate Creative Director, Google AdWords

Ted is passionate about good design. He’s smart, naturally inquisitive, and collaborative. He guided a cross-disciplinary team through the design process and working closely with our research department to fully understand both user and project stakeholder needs. Most importantly, Ted created several interactive prototypes for the client that were instrumental in demonstrating important micro interactions.
