Hel­lo there! I’m Tim. I work as a Senior Fron­tend Engi­neer at 10up. On my free time, I’m tak­ing pic­tures, going to Dis­ney­land, smok­ing cannabis and hav­ing deep con­ver­sa­tions, mak­ing videos, watch­ing movies, skin­ny dip­ping, among many oth­er things 😉

In 2019, after dis­cov­er­ing cov­ered up abuse, I left the cult I was born into. Jehovah’s Wit­ness­es are a top­ic of fre­quen­cy to draw more atten­tion to the heinous things the reli­gion is respon­si­ble for.

In 2021, I came out as bisex­u­al and polyamorous. I write about both of these top­ics in an effort to com­bat bi era­sure and nor­mal­ize con­sen­su­al non-monogamy.

I live in sun­ny Vista, CA with my part­ner Kel­ly and our two cats.

Work Stuff

In 2019, I raised over $10k on Kick­starter to cre­ate Bokeh. Bokeh was imag­ined as 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 (now Think­ful), UX Devel­op­er at ACL Ser­vices (now Gal­va­nize), and Own­er of Any­thin’ Goes. I’ve also worked with Relay FM, Car­bon Ads, &Yet, Lul­labot, Crush & Love­ly, and The Clin­ton Foun­da­tion. 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.
