Hey there-

I'm Fitz, the Creative Technology Lead on Pinterest's Creative Strategy team. I joined in 2018 after five years of agency life.

Looking for someone with a Creative skillset, a Strategic mindset, and a deep, lifelong passion for Technology? I'm your guy.

I've got a Brooklyn vibe with a Manhattan drive and do my best work with folks that are smart, hard working, and collaborative by nature.
