Sha is a designer and cofounder of Nava, a public benefit corporation formed during efforts to help fix HealthCare.gov. Nava continues its work to modernize and reimagine the services the government provides, now working with HealthCare.gov, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and Medicare on large efforts to improve their digital services. With a focus on exceptional human-centered design and scalable infrastructure, Nava has successfully helped agencies enroll millions in healthcare, save years of manual labor, and tens of millions of dollars in operating costs.
A failed architect and accidental entrepreneur, Sha has worked with clients such as the New York Times, the Harvard Library Lab, MTV, CNN, Flickr, and Adobe. Prior to Nava, Sha worked at Stamen Design in San Francisco, and later cofounded the visualization and mapping startup Movity, the generative jewelry company Meshu, and the physical gif printing company Gifpop.
