Oh hey there, I'm Mac.
I'm a cajun, colorblind product designer from Louisiana and am currently living in San Francisco, CA. You'll mostly find me on my road bike, carving linoleum blocks for printing, or wandering the Mission for another burrito.
I'm currently at Square, Inc. where I lead a team focused on banking for small business owners. We made the Square Card together. It's incredibly empowering to work on the future of financial services for sellers who are just starting their business, don't know how they'll survive the next year, or have been rejected services from traditional financial institutions. Square is a dream. Come join me.
Cypress Design Co. is a printmaking shop that I run. Original prints are all done by hand—they're carved from linoleum or rubber, colors are mixed by eye (which I normally can't see, lol), and are hand pressed and pulled. Most are inspired by nature, others are just rad stuff I wanted to work on with friends.
Let's grab a coffee some time. If you're in SF, hit me up. Otherwise, feel free to schedule something.
Working for Square has been the most impactful and emotionally rewarding work I've ever been apart of. For 3+ years, I've been working on a suite of financial products: Balance (every Square payments customer's earned money), Square Card (a free, no application business debit card for our sellers), and Transfers (balance management).

Occasionally, friends convince me to work on side projects with them on nights and weekends. I get suckered into them because they know how to get me with themes that I'm passionate about: sustainability, health, or self-motivated education.
My dad and I used to sit for hours listening to music when I was growing up. We'd put on a record from his wall of vinyls and listen through the whole thing while he'd tell stories of that particular recording or band. He's the one that taught me that listening to an album is an active experience.
This list is public so that y'all can recommend new ones to me. I've also hands down forgotten that I own an album and then bought duplicates. So, you know, this helps me avoid that again.
I've just embraced the stereotypical "designer who's obsessed with coffee" at this point. I use this list to remember all of the roasts I've tried and liked. Honestly, it's my own shopping guide for when I need to get more.
