Hello! I'm Andy O'Dore, a product designer at Facebook.
At Facebook, I focus on people, design systems, and strategy. I'm also a mentor at Designlab and a founding member of PHLDesign. Previously, I was a design lead at Curalate, a senior experience designer at Think Company, and an art director at Evoke Health. …oh geez, you want more?
You might call me an end-to-end product designer. I enjoy collaborating with teams to turn business needs, behavioral insights, and technology into beautiful products that people love. I’m drawn to systemic product challenges and growing teams to tackle them.
Some pretty random things about me:
- Apparently, I'm an ENFJ. Though, I'm more of an ambivert. If you're into this stuff.

- I've done 3 Triathlons. But, I've since chilled out.
