Fonz has a creative eye for design. He was born in Brooklyn, New York- one of the most design-centric places on the planet. The beautiful architectural designs exposed Fonz to art and culture. Initially, he wanted to take up architecture but ended up studying computer science.
During his senior year of college, his university opened up a digital aquarium- which fascinated him with all the multimedia equipment, resources, and software. Since then, he self-taught himself how to design, and from then, he became a digital and growth designer.
Today, Fonz Morris is the lead product designer for global conversion at Netflix and works with some of the world's biggest companies. He is also leading a design team at Coursera- the world’s leading online education platform and is currently working on a book and design course
