(☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞

Hiya, I’m Alex. I help teams build world class products. You might know me from theScore, Jobber, MoMA, KUDO, or Produktiv. I am also a contractor on Figma’s community team, working on Friends of Figma.

When I’m not at work I can usually be found building keyboards, modding gameboys, and digging around the net for interesting interactive art. I’m most active on threads & posts, but if neither suit ya I’m also on twitch, youtube, cohost, mastodon, and bluesky.

👋🏻
I’m currently open to select contracts. If you’re looking for a product designer, strategist, or design manager feel free to drop me a line or check out some work samples. You can also have a look at my references on LinkedIn.

I help manage the central hub of Friends of Figma, Figma's global community platform. My primary focus is on forum moderation, facilitating digital events, contributing to growth strategy, and sharing updates on analytics.

In April 2021, a year after launching, our primary channel had grown by 1050% and member's were sharing an average of 15,000 messages per month. As of July 2023 growth has climbed to over 2000%.

In 2022 I trained and co-led a team of moderators during Figma's 24 hour digital conference, Config. I also contributed to updated moderation processes to be used for future live events.
