I’m Jackson Mohsenin, a software designer based in San Francisco. A lot of folks call me JMO.

I work with early-stage startups on design and product strategy. I love jumping into teams as they're building their MVP or finding product-market fit and helping out with whatever's needed to bring it to life. Recent clients include Castle and /talk.

Previously, I spent six years at Quora as a design manager and product lead.

Say hi if you’re interested in working together:
