Jeff Kirsch is an User Experience and Interaction Designer from Brooklyn, NY.
At LearnVest, he helps manage a team of product and user experience designers and bring a user-centered perspective to the company's client facing products and services in addition to their internal financial planning tools, consulting in an agile environment across various scrum teams and working directly with senior leadership.
A member of the inaugural graduating class of the MFA in Interaction Design program at the School of Visual Arts, he was also on staff and worked closely with the chair to design and build the new program and its spaces. This included spearheading the initiative to create a lab space for exploring the future of interactions. His thesis project, Bookish, is documented here.
He's previously worked on an Apple-featured iOS app and a well-received (but sadly canceled) top-to-bottom redesign and relaunch of Thomson Reuters' consumer-facing news offering, designed products for more responsive cities at Urbanscale, helped launch the location sharing app Marco (a couple years before Apple's Find My Friends), and teamed with Jen Bekman Projects and others as a web developer and consultant.
Jeff lives with his wife, son, and dog in Brooklyn, NY, and tries to make time there for the occasional good book, photography, and a little hiking.
