Hi, I’m Chris Fahey

Hi, I’m Chris Fahey.

I’m a product and user experience design exec with 20 years of experience leading extraordinary design teams and building effective and elegant interactive experiences.

I’m passionate about product design and a nerd about technology. I’m at my best when I’m leading and inspiring designers and engineers to work together as teams, empowering everyone to thrive through effective collaboration.

Currently advising and helping emerging product teams with product strategy, UX and design, process, and team growth. Working with both startups and new initiatives in larger organizations. Let’s talk!
