Welcome

David Panarelli

Mentoring and managing teams to do great work while they improve their design practice.

I focus on three things:

Craft: Facilitating and supporting the design process, assuring we leverage research, collaborate with stakeholders, and execute at the highest level.

Infrastructure: Keeping everything that supports the craft operational; the office environment, design tools, and sample agendas for design activities.

Personal development: A commitment to helping my team use that time for growth through personal objectives and new challenges.

I have experience in user research, product strategy, and interaction design, especially in eCommerce and FinTech. I’m always up for a conversation about work. Let’s get in touch on LinkedIn.
