I'm Ed Macovaz. I've been working in design for about 12 years, 6 of those years managing and leading teams.

I've been at Ableton since 2009, starting as a UX Designer, then Product Owner for the web. After shipping a new Ableton.com alongside Live 9 and Push, I switched to the Live team to work as UI Lead. As the Product Design Team grew I took the role of Head of Design. After just over four years leading the product design team, I decided to switch back to more hands on product design and strategy, where I'm working now.

While working at Ableton I've had some opportunities to speak about design and my work.

Before any of that, I worked as an Interaction Designer at 3 Mobile Australia from 2007 until 2009.

I also enjoy taking photos from the ground or the air and tinkering with music. I'd like to be better at both.
