Hi, I’m Rafe. I’m a Product designer living in Oakland, California. Currently exploring how to bring food from the store to front doors with Instacart. Previously worked on Stories and Music Initiatives at Facebook.


When not designing…
I’m usually reading and writing (mostly speculative fiction), tinkering with bits, and learning the craft of fabric from a textile wizard. When I’m lucky, making time for travel or crafting the occasional IRL experience with other people that value community. Currently, helping teach teens how to apply design thinking in their community with the Inneract Project.
