Sharif Ezzat manages design and user experience at Genentech in South San Francisco. Coming of age at the same time as the internet, Sharif took advantage of his early exposure to emerging technologies, working as a freelance designer, web developer, and artist for over a decade before joining Genentech in 2010. There he led the redesign of the corporate intranet, which was included in the Nielsen Norman Group's 10 Best Intranets of 2012, and the recent redesign of gene.com, the company's public website. His artistic work has been featured by AdBusters, the San Franciscio International Film Festival, and the Electronic Literature Organization. Since 2003, Sharif has helped produce and expand the Arab Film Festival in California, and he has collaborated and toured widely with acclaimed beatbox performer Yuri Lane.×
