I’m Griffin, a Product Designer from Boston. I create beautiful, data-informed experiences.

Currently at Klaviyo. Previously at Happie and Boothby Media.

Experience

During my time at Trinity College I founded a creative production agency called Boothby Media, which was focused on high-quality UI/UX product development, graphic design, video production, and aerial photography. Upon graduation I moved to Seattle to continue to grow Boothby Media full time. I successfully brokered 80+ deals from 2016-2019 with companies including Amazon, Major League Baseball, Windermere Real Estate, Schnitzer Steel, and Sapling Energy.

During the winter of 2018, I made the decision to step away from Boothby Media. While I had learned an incredible amount of about business and design from that experience, I was looking to further my professional development in new ways. I moved back to the east coast and started working for a SaaS company called Happie. I'm currently the lead product designer and have had significant impacts on improving the UI/UX of our software. I lead the design process from concept through the development phase while ensuring brand standards as new products and features are introduced.

Writing

Design is about getting things out there — not perfecting them — and seeing how they do. I believe that writing is the same. While my writing time is limited, I'm making an effort to get it out there and see how it does. So, whether it's academic, design-driven, or something else entirely, here's where my writing can be found.

The Deception of Data

In our ever-increasing digital world, the unseen and looming presence of algorithms produce findings that sort us, sell to us, persuade us, and report on us. Daily technological advancements reshape our ideas and abilities for interconnectedness by providing a place for the ability to record, distribute, and analyze information.

In this year-long honors thesis, I explore the ways in which the relationship between three actors: political perceptions, the data people share, and Facebook have on the American identity in its current contentious climate.
