My name is
Aaron Z. Lewis
& I’m a politically-minded designer.

I’m interested in the design of minds, products, policy, and social movements.

I currently work as a product designer at Uber. Previously, I studied cognitive science at Yale and designed apps for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. I’m especially inspired by Douglas Hofstadter, Bret Victor, Nicky Case, and Venkatesh Rao.

You can reach me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or email. Nothing is a non-sequitur.
