About

Who am I?

Raised in the flames of late-century Flint MI, I vowed to fight ugly interfaces and battle confusion in all forms.

I love JQuery, open access to information, and subversively educational video games

At work, I drive UI requirements from concept to release. I define features, user flows, content & error conditions.

My goal is to ship funny, beautiful experiences.
