I love Star Wars, coffee, taking pictures, spending time with friends, reading comics, writing on my blog, making YouTube videos, watching movies, playing board games, and spending time naked near or in water.
I was born and raised in Southern California. In 2012, I moved to Minnesota and spent seven years there. It was a great adventure. In 2019, I moved back to California, beginning a new era of my life. If you’re interested in a more in-depth update, the “Personal” category on my blog is a good place to start.
Work Stuff #
I’m a Senior Frontend Engineer at 10up.
I’m also the creator of Bokeh. In 2019, I successfully raised over $10k on Kickstarter to create an initial app. Bokeh is an Instagram alternative to share photos with friends and family privately.
Previously, I was the Senior Producer at Changelog, Senior UX Designer & Developer at Mealthy, Design Mentor at Bloc, UX Developer at Galvanize, and Owner of Anythin’ Goes. Relay FM, Carbon Ads, &Yet, Lullabot, Crush & Lovely, and The Clinton Foundation are more of the amazing organizations I’ve had the chance to work with. Here’s my resume if you’re interested.
Other Cool Stuff #
I hosted The East Wing from 2012–2015. It was a podcast that interviewed people who build the web. The podcast was nominated for a Net Magazine award two years in a row.
I had a blog called Bright Pixels (formerly The Bold Report) that I wrote from 2013–2019. My writing has also appeared on A List Apart, UX Booth, and Net Magazine. If you’d like me to write for your publication, my email address is listed below.
