About me & my work:

Celebrates the renegade spirit of California by designing products and experiences that are - Human. Simple. Authentic.

Currently, I run a bespoke skunk works product design consultancy - Minimalisms.

Working with craftspeople around the world I have designed iconic objects and experiences such as the world's first heirloom electronic - Runcible, by Monohm. Designed to be quiet. Fundamentally calming. Humanistic.

Previously, I have led multidisciplinary teams of industrial design & CMF, visual & interactive design, and product management focused on product design at Apple, PlayStation, Sony, Theranos, Adobe.

During my tenure with Sony, George was directly responsible for establishing, defining, and driving Sony's common UX across all 5-screens known as "genome" from Bravia 4K, Xperia, to Vita, ending with the PlayStation 4 console and connected experiences.

When not working, I enjoy artisan sake brewing, culinary excursions, architecture, and hunting for the next best cup of cold brew coffee.

I currently splits my time between San Francisco, Tokyo, and Kyoto.
