Ted started his design career at Duarte Design with Apple as his main client. He worked one-on-one with Al Gore, to create the compelling and impactful slides that were the basis for the Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. After Duarte, he spent 5 years at Apple as the lead UI designer for Keynote on the iPad, iPhone and desktop. He then spent a little under 2 years at Netflix as Lead Designer for mobile, held the role of Senior Designer at Nest and most recently was Director of Design at Udacity. He is now a Product Design Manager at Instagram.
Ted studied Industrial Design, and still enjoys product design and building things in his spare time. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and depending on what day it is you might find him surfing in Santa Cruz or enjoying food in San Francisco.
Ted is an evangelist and promotor of Keynote as a tool for UI/UX designers and spoke on the subject at SXSW 2013/2014/2015, the Academy of Art in SF, and for the Design Team at Spotify. Find out more at ilovekeynote.com.
