Hi, I'm Garen.

Here is my simple website. For my day job, I work on the YouTube User Experience team. I'm a prototyper, meaning that I work collaboratively to make great products by helping teams learn as much as possible as quickly as possible. I help these teams ask big qustions, explore radical concepts, and feel out interactive ideas before we have to commit to anything. We work with post-its, storyboards, keynote, videos, and code using real data. I work on interactions and algorithms and everything in between.

Lately, I've been focused on how YouTube can succeed in high-growth markets like India, where cultures and connectivity are pretty different.

And I also camp, teach spin classes, paint and see theatre and dance. Get ahold of me at GarenCheckley@gmail.com.
