About


Tom Smykowski
Hello, my name is Ari Feldman and this is my personal online space. I'm a Product Manager at Google and have made various contributions to products across the online advertising and enterprise spaces. I've also been fortunate to have worked on a bunch of interesting projects during my career.

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.

In my free time, I enjoy my family, vegitating on my couch, eating a variety of tasty animals (organic or factory farmed makes no difference to me), playing Panzer General II, following international 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 quite a bit of Tom in the soul of veteran Product Managers everywhere.
