I'm Galen, an artist and designer from Toronto, Ontario. (he/him)
My full-time work is with Okta where I work remotely on the brand's Studio team. Originally I joined Auth0 in 2021 as Sr. Visual Designer, shortly before it was acquired. In both roles, my focus has been towards web and digital on UI/UX, accessibility, design systems, and cross-functional collaboration.
Previously, I was a lead designer for Influitive and Art Director at quintly in Cologne, Germany. I also did graphics for Joe Fresh for a number of years.
Outside of the day jobs, I work with and am inspired by creative pursuits including but not limited to; music, illustration, video, animation, writing, typography, architecture, science, nature, and community organizing. Travelling and exploring the great outdoors play a big part in my life. I believe in working to make the world a better place for all which is why inclusive design and supporting independent creators is close to my heart.
I occasionally share music I've made and do the odd mix for a web radio site I created called AM. Don't hesitate to get in touch and say hi!
