Hi. I'm Jeff.

I'm a designer of digital experiences, currently working at Backstage and living in Brooklyn.

Building an industry-leading career platform for actors and casting directors alike.

Over the past four years our team has rebuilt nearly every product Backstage offers. As Lead Product Designer, I provide the design (and most of the HTML and CSS) for nearly everything we put out, including these little nuggets:

Application Manager

An intuitive system for casting directors to view, organize, share and contact the thousands of applicants they can potentially receive for a project.

Casting Search

With advanced filtering options, ability to save searches, and a quick, slide-out view for each listing, our casting job search is a powerful tool for actors – and a thing of envy for our competitors!

Talent Profiles

An essential tool for actors to get hired, our new profile system allows for easy updating with a toggled editing mode, as well as a UI that's optimized to showcase their best stuff to casting directors who might want ot hire them.

iOS app

Most of our users are actors constantly out going to auditions and rehearsals. While all our web apps are responsive, this will be a much faster, seamless experience for those on the go. I've worked closely with our iOS team over the past year and we're excited for this thing to launch (very soon)!
