Experience

May 2017 - Oct 2023

Acquired by SRAM, LLC Jan 2022

I was one of two Hammerhead’s three generations of cycling computers to market. During this period, I designed interfaces spanning iOS, web, and our own OS where situational awareness is critical. I co-led the process to define our upcoming flagship device. After acquisition by SRAM, LLC in 2022, I was responsible for the integration of our multi-platform design system with SRAM’s design system. I worked with Tour de France champions to develop new data visualizations, which we adapted to provide value for everyday riders. My contributions led to a patent, reinforcing our products’ unique value for riders. Over the years I worked towards maturing our processes to encourage research and engineering collaboration throughout. By the end of my time, I’ve helped riders navigate over 4M+ bike rides.

Recognition

Provisional Patent – Route based feature implementations without defined route or destination.

2023

US – Patent Pending US20230251096A1

Germany – Patent Pending DE102023102785A1
Taiwan – Patent TW202334614A

Contributed to a computer-based method for providing analytical features at a navigation device. The method includes determining, by a position determining module of the navigation device, a first location of the navigation device associated with a first time. The method then proceeds to determine a second location of the navigation device associated with a second time and associates the first and second locations with coordinates on a first graph edge of a map, determines a travel direction based on a sequence of the locations, and determines a current location of the navigation device. An inferred path defining a travel path is then based on coordinates associated with the first and second locations, the travel direction, and the current location, and mapping data associated with the likely travel path is analyzed to identify a characteristic of interest of the likely travel path.
