Jeffrey spent over six years as Chief Creative Officer of Threadless.com where he helped to build the company from a profitable side-project into a hugely successful, multi-million dollar brand with an active online-community of well over a million tee shirt and design enthusiasts.
The company’s success presented him opportunities to speak all over the world, have a business model he helped shape become a Harvard Business School case study, and even land him on the cover of INC Magazine along with one of Threadless’ two founders.
After Threadless, he worked at Digg as Director of Design and User Experience (2009-2010), and SimpleGeo as VP of Product (acquired by Urban Airship, 2010-2011). Jeffrey is currently Head of Product & Design at a new startup in SF, and also advises a handful of companies in the US & UK. He lives in San Francisco with his wife.
