Hi There! I'm Andy O'Dore, a Product Designer at Facebook.
Before building career growth and hiring products at Facebook, I spent 3+ years at Curalate, designing products that leveraged social content and image recognition technology to help brands like Nordstrom, Starbucks, Urban Outfitters, and Nike sell more effectively.
Originally from Philadelphia, I spent almost a decade at branding and advertising agencies before making the leap into product design. I'm drawn to systemic product and organizational challenges and empowering teams to tackle them. I enjoy turning business needs, behavioral insights, and technology into inclusive products that people love.
Outside of design, I enjoy running long distances, traveling to new places, and puns – lots of puns.
Say hello, I’d love to chat. 👋
Some very random things about me:
Apparently, I'm an ENFJ. Though, I'm more of an ambivert. If you're into that stuff.
My wife Liz – "recruited" me. She was a former tech recruiter.
We've got 2 cats, Neko & Stella. They still won't let me sleep.
I took an 8 week Improv 101 class. Zip zap zop anyone?
I played the drums …in the marching band.
I marched in an indoor drumline. What the? It looks like this.
I was a boy scout. I can whittle, I guess.
My first job was at a movie theater. I snuck into ALL the movies.
I was a swim instructor & lifeguard for a few years. Ask me about one of my first teaching sessions. Yeesh.
If the cupid shuffle comes on at a wedding, avert your eyes – I'm dancing.
I might have a slight obsession with puns. Cough cough - See my instagram.
D'alessandro steaks is the best cheesesteak in Philly. @ me.
