Amazon

Geoff was the sole designer on a product that helped us manage our Vendor relationships. He was asked to deliver several features, but also took ownership over user research and suggested additional user delight features. He was responsible for every aspect of the design and prototyping for testing, and presented his work to leaders in design and product. His storytelling—visual and verbal—was important to aligning stakeholders on his solutions. He earned a lot of trust with his product partners.”

Becky Scott – UX Design Manager

Apptentive

“Geoff reported to me (both directly and then indirectly) as part of our product team at Apptentive. He was a very talented UX designer, passionate about addressing users needs and eager to iterate amongst a variety of approaches to identify the best way to solve a particular problem. I was really impressed with Geoff’s energy and creativity– he had an infectious love of the creative build process.”

Mike Saffitz – CTO
