About


Tom Smykowski
Hello, my name is Ari Feldman and I'm a Product Manager at Google where I've made various contributions to products across the online advertising and enterprise spaces. I've also had a few different careers in my time and worked on a bunch of interesting projects.

I've periodically dabbled in pixel art (as well as game art design / game development) and created SpriteLib, a free collection of pre-drawn 2D artwork that has been featured in dozens of computer programming books over the years. Speaking of computer books, I actually wrote one of my own and as well as a second book that was never published (ironically, the second one was better than the first).

In my free time, I enjoy my family, vegitating on my couch, eating tasty animals (organic or factory farmed), following strategic developments, indulging in retro computing, listening to Spotify, and keeping up with the latest Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna gossip. And, no, I don't look like Tom Smykowski from the 1999 movie "Office Space" but there's a little bit of Tom in the soul of Product Managers everywhere.
